    Hi- I had seen on your website that you have free scarves to cancer patients.
    My grandmother is 79 years old and just found out this year that she has anal cancer. She is the sweetest kindest person you could ever meet. Her hair is almost completly gone from the chemo treatments and she is so insecure about this since I have never seen her hair out of place. Her hair was always perfect. We have tried the regular scarves but they are just too small and she is constantly retying them and pulling them down on her head.
    Is there anything that you can do to help my grandmother?
    Anything would be truely appreciated.
    Thank you so much

    Hi, I have Evasive Ductal Carsinamo, I had my double Masectomy on Jan 21 2010 after 8 months of some harsh Chemo. I am currently in the process of breast reconstruction and will have chemo till Oct 2010. I live in Portland Or so I wouldn’t be able to attend your classes. I love the idea of Cosmetics and and creams. It alwaysmakes me feel better when I look nice. I was wondering since I am so far away is there anything you can offer somebody like me??

    My grandmother is a very sweet caring person, and we found out that she has breast cancer, we wereonly aware of one lump but when they went in forthe surgery she had two lumps one was hid behind the other, they also had to remove 15 out of 16 limp nodes. We have been trying to help her cope with this the best way possible. She has lost just about all of her hair and she is constantly concerned about the way she looks, so we are always trying to boost her up, if there are any kind of programs i can get her signed up in for free materials please let me know. It is greatly appreciated and God Bless.

    I am about to take my fourth treatment for breast cancer, then I will have four to go. I’m in desperate need of scarves, I have exhausted all my funds trying to find hats but they don’t look right or feel right. The only thing that does feel right are the scarves. I have one that i wear all the time. Could you help? Do you offer make-up?

    I seen your site and could use your help, Cancer Fairy Godmother.

    November 2009 Valerie, our beautiful daughter,at 26 was diagnosed with small cell carcinoma cervical cancer and started radiation treatments and chemo 3x’s a week now. Small cell carcinoma is a type of highly malignant carcinoma usually associated with the lung, though it can be associated with other topographies, such as in cervical cancer When my daughter started losing her hair she went to Locks for Love in hopes of having a wig. Once she found out there was nothing they could do for her because she was to old, she told them to cut it off to donate anyway. She told them to take off as much as they could (24 inches) and use it for a child who needed it. i know you don’t know my daughter, but this is very typical of the woman we are proud to call our daughter. We have been planning Valerie’s wedding . Her wedding was to take place in May of this year 2010. Now her wedding dress hangs in a closet covered in plastic, alongside all of the items we have made and collected for the wedding and reception, which are placed neatly in plastic bins… in an empty bedroom. It had been transformed into a wedding room for Valerie, but now a wedding that was meant to happen… is off, indefinitely. because these 2 kids love each other so much we are putting together a mock wedding for them in Aug 2010. she wont marry him for real because he will be left with all the Dr. bills when she’s gone, sadly they have only given Valerie 7 Mo’s to live There’s a saying and I heard once that will forever describe my daughter, “It’s not how many breathes that you take in life…but it’s how many moments that take your breath away…” Valerie has the ability to take your breath away with her unyielding kindness. Everyone she comes in contact with is blown away with her ability to love life and the kindness she shows to everyone she comes in contact with. Anything you could do to help, or to point us in the right direction, i will be grateful and it will be truly appreciated.
    Thank you

    My brother is undergoing treatment for throat cancer. He is having a lot of problems with sore throat and cannot eat. He uses a feeding tube right now, and is having to always keep his mouth wet. Any ideas of what to do for him? His address is Richard Modert, 1097 Southern Rd in Bronson, Michigan 49028. Since the food he has to use is expensive, do you know of free things he can get for helping with the dry mouth, etc….

    Hello., I am writing regarding my identical twin sister who is in her first stages of Chemo for Triple Negative Breast Cancer. The Double Dense dose of the treatments is making her extremely sick and unable to get out of bed to do anything. I feel that she needs something to motivate her in some way to hold on. Insperational music, stories, nice bedding, something pretty to smell …IS there anything that you could do for Nancy to make her feel prettier than she feels. It would mean so much to both of us if you could!

    My 30 year old cousin has been fighting melanoma for the last 9 years. She has been doing very well with it until just this last week. She was rushed to the hospital due to shortness of breath. The doctors found a massive melanoma spot growing on top of her lung. It is big enough, that it is smashing her lung and making it very difficult for her to breath. She decided to try and make the journey to Florida where she could get better care. Her doctors didn’t think she would make it there. Next week, she will begin a 6 day stay in the hospital for some major chemo treatment. The doctors said she will be losing her hair. She has asked me to gather up some scarves since it is so hot in Florida. I was just wondering if you could help me out with a scarf to start her off with? Any item to send to her would be great.

    Hi, I was wondering if someone can point me in the right direction of getting a really good scarf for my grandmother! She just had brain surgery to remove 1 of 3 tumors. 1 more in her brain and 1 in her lung. They had to shave her head and she refuses to let anyone see her that way. They are going to perform radiation treatments soo the scarf would have to last some time. Please if you know of a good brand, shop, website, etc let me know. ( it would really help if it was not very expensive either) thank you soo much.

    My friend Aundrea has leukemia and it’s on going. She also has other diseases associate with this such as lupus, fibromylgia and recently she had brain surgery to remove clots.

    She is on chemo and her hair is falling out. I was wondering if she could get some of your products. I’m a poet of sorts and in exchange I’d be happy to create poems for cancer survivors to cheer them up for your helping me. Thank you so much

    I was diagnosed with stage three inflammatory carcinoma of the breast. I was wondering if it is possible to received maybe a scarf as I no longer work and have no income. I hate to ask but don’t have anywhere to turn. I used to be a mammographer in the breast care field so I see what it does for these ladies to receive even a little help. Now I’m on the other side of the coin being a patient and ask for your help.

    Hello Everyone!

    Happy Holidays, and I am extending my heartfelt prayers that people have been able to find a way to get some enjoyment from this years holiday season. This time of year has been traditionally dark for me, and I have done my best this year to change things around.

    I just wanted to suggest this service I have discovered: The National Cancer Institute Help Line 1-800-422-6237 as a way to get some of your questions answered regarding help with money, grants and support.

    I want to apologize to everyone that has come to this site seeking money or access to resources that would ease your financial burden. This is just a website put up by Tonya Sue Carther a few years ago before she succumbed to her own fight with Cancer. I have left pretty much all the content and writing that she originally put into the site, and due to the way Google and the other search engines index the web, this site comes up quite a bit for people searching for free goods and services related to fighting cancer.

    Not a day goes by that I am not trying to come up with a way to find funding to be able to make this happen. Unfortunately, I am just one person, and I do not travel in the circles of rich philanthropists, so I do not know anyone with the kind of cash that this site would need to start even doing the basics, like producing free wigs, bra prosthetics and stylish head scarves, let alone money to help people with cancer treatments.

    If you are one of these people, who has access to the rich + the wealthy who are kind of heart with money to give (Angels), please mention this site and have them contact me to discuss possible options. This site is entirely and act of love and memory, and I know there are many sites out there like this one.

    In the meantime, I apologize again for not being able to give anything more that information regarding Cancer resources as they come up in my radar. If you have any information about resources that would help others, please post or email me, and I would happily publish the intel on this site for people to find.

    May all of you find the blessings of health, joy and happiness for the new year.

    We will try and help anyone in medical need. We have no resources to give out at this time, could you post some links dealing with Lupus, or places you visit on the Web that you have found useful so we can list them on the site?

    God bless you!
