With the holidays coming up - we have a free resource we'd like to introduce you to called Mend After (mendafter.com/recovery-registry/) who has created a registry, like a wedding registry, but for cancer patients. It's a new way that friends, family and colleagues can gift meaningful support to a cancer patient.
Specifically, they are looking for patients and caregivers to create a registry and provide early feedback. As a thank you for your time, each person will receive a $50 site credit once you create and share the registry. In addition, Mend After will donate $20 to Breastcancer.org on the patient's behalf.
How it works: Create a registry at (mendafter.com/recovery-registry/) and enter the code BCORG$50; Mend After will suggest products and cash funds based on your specific treatments and symptoms. You choose which items you think could help you the most
