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!
