Cancer is an illness that takes a lot of work to overcome. Once you are diagnosed, not only do you have to worry about your health, but also paying for deductibles, co-pays and expensive medical care.
“Thankfully, there are generous people and organizations whose mission it is to make the journey a little easier,” says Bethany Kandel, founder of BreastCancerFreebies.com.
Kandel is a former reporter for USA Today and a 5-year breast cancer survivor.
Her website helps take the burden off your wallet with free products like wigs, hats, and make-up, and free services like house cleaning, transportation and more.
“This site is my way of paying it forward in gratitude to my health and in thanks to all the good people who helped me,” said Kandel. “FREE is my favorite four-letter word — after LOVE!”
