You all know how helpful dropping f-bombs has been during my experience with FBC, right? Well, recently I came across another (much more fabulous!) “F” word to associate with FBC: F.R.E.E.
Last week I received an email out of the blue from Bethany Kandel. In addition to her kind words about The Silver Pen, she told me that she was diagnosed with FBC five years ago. As a result, during her treatment and recovery, she put her extensive skills as a journalist to work by compiling all of the (FREE!) resources that she could find into a recently launched blog, “Breast Cancer Freebie$“. (Yes, the “s” is cleverly replaced by a $ sign!).
Don’t you just love the name? I mean, seriously. She describes breastcancerfreebies.com as “help for the body, soul and pocketbook when you need it most!” It is her way of “paying it forward in gratitude for my health and in thanks to all the good people out there who want to help others.” Talk about a major Silver Lining!
Bethany generously agreed to share more of her story (and gift to the FBC world!) with us:
I thoroughly enjoyed my time on this site and encourage you to share it with anyone who could benefit from it. Thank you, Bethany, for this incredible gift!
