Looking for help? (cancer)

I’m still fighting pneumonia and the associated fatigue, but I received the most beautiful scarf in the mail from the people at L. Erickson’s Good Wishes program, which sends a silk scarf or head wrap to anyone losing their hair as a result of illness or treatment.  I’m assuming they mean cancer only and not alopecia, but it couldn’t hurt to ask!  Thank you, Good Wishes!

I’ve updated a resource page at Mothers With Cancer accordingly — check there if you’re helping a cancer patient and looking for resources for cleaning, cooking, hats and scarves, lymphedema sleeves, wigs, makeup, and how to organize to help a friend with cancer.  I don’t know what I’d have done without my friends this year and in 2007 – consider yourselves hugged!

  1. My thoughts and prayers are with you!

  2. Susan, we refer our clients to Good Wishes and their scarves and head wraps are gorgeous! My understanding is that they will support any woman going through medical hair loss. My friend Michele at http://www.fatthumb.com also makes hats for anyone with medical hair loss (including children).

    I’ve been thinking of you – I hope you breathe easy & get your energy back soon.

    I also received a head wrap from Good Wishes earlier this year. It’s an incredible program staffed with wonderful people.

  8. Susan,
    Hope you are breathing easier and the pneumonia is on the downward slide. Just wanted to let you know you are in my thoughts.

While a fundraiser endeavor is in progress, we know it’s not enough, and this information you provided will ge given to her. Thank you thank you thank you fir thinking of others while you are also striving fir healing yourself.
