Mom Connects Breast Cancer Patients With Freebies To Help Healing

Many people don’t realize that beyond all the havoc breast cancer wreaks on the body, dealing with and recovering from the disease is also very expensive, survivor Bethany Kandel said.

To make resources more accessible, Kandel, 57, created and launched the website Breast Cancer Freebies two years ago as a way of marking her five-year anniversary as a cancer-free survivor.

Her site aims to consolidate all the offerings from companies and individuals that try to help breast cancer patients and survivors — including access to free wigs, hats, books, smartphone apps, cancer screenings, cosmetic tattoos, treatment travel costs and more.
