Resources

On this page, you will find resources that I have personally used. They will range from retreats to concerts and even headwear, jewelry and teddy bears for your children.

Good Wishes

This group creates beautiful, well made scarves that they mail out to patients who are struggling with loss of hair from illness or medication.  The scarf that I received is so well made and beautiful, it also came with a card hand signed by volunteers and staff of Good Wishes.

Casting For Recovery

This is an amazing group that teachs cancer patients to fly fish.  In a matter of 48 hours you learn how to prepare a fly line, tie a fly, how to cast, even the stages of a bug’s life.  You also learn about you.  You connect with other breast cancer patients on a level you didn’t even know you needed.  You can read more about my experience here.

Heavenly Hats

If you are struggling with hair loss, Heavenly Hats sends out packages of donated hats to help with loss of hair for any illness.  I received a hat and a scarf myself which were beautiful and very feminine.

Look Good Feel Better

If you are here looking for resources, you NEED this… Seriously.  As cancer patients, we tend to get too tired to make ourselves look good or even care.  The Look Good Feel Better class however, renews that desire.  You receive a large bag filled with full size high-end makeup products.  I received Ulta, Estee Lauder, Clinique, Dior and more.  You also meet other ladies who are struggling with their identity and even being bald.  For me, this was the first time I met others who had lost their hair and I needed it.  Do you want to check out what I received in my bag?  Here is my video.

Do It For The Love Foundation

This amazing group gives the gift of music to cancer patients.  You apply and if chosen, you submit your doctor paperwork, etc and you get to choose a concert!  I was chosen and I chose Lady Gaga in San Francisco because my little girls wanted to see her so badly.  It was an absolutely phenomenal experience!  We had field tickets and Do It For The Love even sent me a (super cool) t-shirt to wear along with some swag.  It was definitely an experience I will remember that rest of my life… and so will my little girls who have been here for me through all of my cancer struggle.  NOT limited to breast cancer patients

First Descents

First Descents host week long extreme retreats for young adults battling cancer.  It helps remind us that, that cancer diagnosis isn’t the end of being strong, etc.  Not only does it teach a sport but, reminds us that we aren’t done.  We can still do new, exciting things… and gives us a chance to connect with other young adults.  First Descents is aimed at ages 18-40 BUT… I did meet a friend at Casting for Recovery who is over 40 and was chosen… so why not apply?  NOT limited to breast cancer patients
