Knitted Knockers is a fabulous website. If you aren't sure about a prosthetic yet or in the middle of the reconstruction process they will send you free comfortable, yes actually comfortable, inserts. They work solely on donation.
Cleaning your home is the least of your worries when being diagnosed and going through treatment. Visit Cleaning For A Reason and see if there is a cleaning service in your area that will do two cleanings for free during your treatment.
This last page has a TON of resources. Too many to list. Visit National Breast Cancer Resources for other websites that may help you through your journey.
This is a local and online resource that provides nutritional education and grants for hotel stays and meals for young women in recovery or in need of respite. This nonprofit is a tribute to Genevieve who was taken too soon from metastatic breast cancer. Her family set up this nonprofit to help those who may need some extra time to heal while going through treatment. The grant that is given is used for the start of treatment, for respite during treatment or following other circumstances affecting treatment. For more information visit their page and fill out the simple and quick form to see if you qualify.
Because of this amazing non-profit we were connected with Genevieve's Helping Hands. They provide respites for women with cancer at no cost to them. We had the pleasure of doing a dual respite with them in September. If you or someone you know has had cancer and is in need of some TLC head to their website and apply for a respite.
