I will try and post as many as I can now, and, add to it later.  I know these sites helped a lot of the pinkies on here before, and, it might help some of you now that are going thru chemo.  I think they all offer FREE stuff for you.  If any of you know any other sites, please post them too.  If you've gotten something from the sites, why don't you post what you think of it.  I hope these sites can help some of you! :)

Heavenlyhats.com - Free hats

Hatsforyou.com

That one site, the heavenly hats one, was started by a teenager.  He was only 10 years old when he started the foundation.  Isn't that amazing?

I'll try to post some sites too.

This is really nice Ritzy to put this up.

 

Hugs, Leeza

Thanks for reminding us Leeza!  I know I was so surprised to find out that he was just a kid and started that amazing foundation.

Sue:

I checked out the www.fillaheart.org website for free pillow for mastectomy patients and they announced they can no longer mail pillows anywere in the United States:

"We regret we can no longer mail our heart pillows anywhere in the Country."


heavenlyhats.org is actually heavenlyhats.com. I couldn't find a website with free hats for cancer patients at heavenlyhats.org, but found one using  .com to get free hats for cancer patients.

Dear Sue,

Just received a lovely head cover scarf from Good Wishes and a lovely card signed by their staff.  

I can't tie regular scarves as I can't reach behind me to tie them.  I have a lot of problems with my left arm, torn tendon, bursitis, neuropathy and lymphedema.  

I had a lot of beautiful silk scarves collected over the years but I can't wear them on my head

I sent my choice to Good Wishes from the web page provided:  www.goodwishesscarves.org - Free scarf or wrap

Today, I received a lovely "yellow linen" head covering scarf, the kind that is already ready to plop on.  It fits too!  It was my first choice.

Thank you Sue for posting those web pages, I hope others try one of these web pages.  I wanted to see what it was like before I posted.

After all, a girl can never have to many head covering.

 

Bumping up!

Doris, I am so happy that you got a scarf and that you love it!  If someone goes to the Franceluxe.com site, just go to the bottom of the page and where it says Good Wishes, click on that to get your free scarf or the goodwishesscarves.org.

I was so hoping someone would go to some of these sites and get something.  You've made my day Doris!  And, thanks for your pm! 

Sue :)
