Free Stuff for Cancer Survivors – Freebies and Discounts for Cancer Patients

After going through a breast cancer diagnosis and treatment, I found out that there’s more to the expense than just the medical bills.  I was not able to do my normal things and therefore we had to figure out how to take care of everything from childcare to household care.  Here are discounts and free stuff for cancer patients.

discounts free stuff cancer patients breast cancer survivor

1UponCancer put together a list of Freebies and Discounts for Cancer Patients.  The list includes a variety of free and discounted goods and services such as basic needs, prothesis, classes, gas, housecleaning, pampering, retreats, and more. For example, Air Care Alliance ACA flies patients to treatments at no charge. Breast Cancer Charities gives qualifying breast cancer patients up to $500 towards rent or utilities. Crickett’s Answer For Cancer gives breast cancer patients free Mastectomy massage, other massage therapies, facial, manicure, basket of pampering products.

Another great resource is HealinComfort’s FREE Stuff for Breast Cancer Patients.

I wish I would have known about these when I was going through treatment.  Many of these are offered only to low income or under-insured patients, but some services are offered to any cancer survivors.

 




Suggested Cancer Readings

Here are some books I found helpful while dealing with cancer, the diagnosis, treatment, etc.

planet cancer - tips for cancer survivors

 

Kris Carr has a whole “Crazy Sexy Cancer” following now.  She’s a young adult with cancer and she offers lots of helpful advice on living a healthy life.  Here are a few of her books.

This book, AntiCancer, offers tips on how people living with cancer can fight it and how healthy people can prevent it.  There are lots of practical things you can do.  You choose to do as much or as little as you want, but the point is to do something. My neighbor, Bernardo (who runs the site Your Great Life TV – Dare To Live Fully) found this book so inspiring and helpful, he gave me my own copy.


There’s also Planet Cancer: The Frequently Bizarre Yet Always Informative Experiences and Thoughts of Your Fellow Natives. This a great read for young adult cancer survivors.

    Does anyone know of any programs that helps with bills? Since I’ve been going through chemo I find it very diffacult to keep up with all the bills. My husband works and makes 15.00 a hour but needs to drive 50 miles each way to get to work which takes a big bite out of his check before he even gets it. I’m not working. I could use help with dental, vision, rent, electric, cable, gas for car, repaire for car, food etc. I mostly have enough food because I don’t eat as much as I use to but my doctors expect me to eat foods like blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberies, multi colored veggies, whole grains etc. which are very expensive to add every day. I try to buy and eat them once a month. Also wants me to have Ensure. Please let me know. I’ve tried most of the websites I could find online by the search engine and didn’t find much. Thank you

    Cindy, I’m sorry you are going through this. It’s rough.

    I’m not sure of any programs like that, but you may want to contact Livestrong or the American Cancer Society. If they can’t help, I bet they can tell you who to contact. Good luck and let us know what you find out.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to
    my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had
    to tell someone!

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to
    no backup. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?

    Hi there! Quick question that’s completely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My weblog looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share.

    Have you seen this expose on the American Cancer Society. 60+ cents of every dollar raised goes directly to their pension fund, another 30+ cents to fund raising leaving about 9 cents on the dollar to pay all their employees and do research. Rumor has it that less than 5 cents on the dollar actually goes to research. Not our story, from Atlanta TV station:
