I read about this on Leslie's blog, Flowers of Life. She blogs about an organisation called Chemo Angels.

I recommend you visit this site. What a wonderful idea.

When I had chemo and radiotherapy last year ( urggh!) a good friend of mine ( hello wonderful Sheila) sent me cards ( sometimes every day) and gifts ( lots of them- they were all lovely). It made such a difference and really cheered me up.

I also received cards and gifts from many people, both good friends and those more distant. They made a major impact on me and gave me massive encouragement. I will never throw them out ( and I am not usually a hoarder of cards etc).

Very inspiring!

Thanks for coming to my site and for mentioning Chemo Angels on yours. I happened upon Chemo Angels on the internet one day and decided that I could do my part to help. My little Mom passed away from cancer at the young age of 58 and so I am trying to help others that have been affected by this horrible disease in any way that I can. I most recently painted a mural in a cancer ward at our state hospital (it's on one of my older posts if you want to take a look at it)as a donation and a way of giving to the cause.

I'm so happy to hear you are a cancer survivor-joy and praise to God for that!

Peace and Love to you and your family during this holiday season and throughout the year!


Do come and visit me again!

Thank you for sharing this with us. I did not know you went through Chemo yourself...glad to know that the gifts and cards sent did lift your spirits though. Sometimes the smallest of gestures can brighten someones day.
