If you or a loved one has had a cancer diagnosis, then you probably know that cancer is expensive. Even with insurance, the expenses add up. Not only are there medical expenses, but there are additional costs for support and services. I put together a big list of free stuff for cancer patients and one of the items on the list is free gift cards.
Cancer Card Xchange Gives Free Gift Cards to Cancer Patients
Did you know that cancer patients can get free gift cards? I wish I had known this during my breast cancer treatment.
Through Cancer Card Xchange, cancer patients have received 3,550 gift cards to date!
The Story of Cancer Card Xchange
Back in 2007, Emily Thomas had oral squamous cell carcinoma during her pregnancy with her fourth son. She went to MD Anderson in Houston for surgery, and when she got there friends had sent her an assortment of gift cards for popular restaurants in the area.
That simple gesture of kindness motivated her to help other cancer patients through their journey with The Cancer Card Xchange.
On the website, people can choose to donate or request gift cards.
