    Hi Frugal Girl!
    My cousin’s wife was diagnosed with breat cancer, and is currently undergoing chemo before her surgery. I saw you bought your sister-in-law anti-nausea bracelets. Where did you find them, and can you recommend any other types of gifts or spirit-lifting things I can send to her? I’m at a loss.

    Your challenge sounds amazing. Congratulations! You are definitely an inspiriation.
