Send that card! They really matter. How much? Well, after four years being cancer free I STILL pull mine out every now and then to read the well wishes; all 265 of them. It’s amazing how much support comes from the good old fashion handwritten letter.

Before cancer I could not have imagined how much these cards would mean. Each one gave me a little bit more strength and resolve to keep fighting. There were drawings from friends’ kids, cards with just signatures, and even a finger puppet show that arrived for me.

Each one was special, but there were two types that provided so much comfort that I want to tell you about them.

The first came from a special Aunt of mine. Judy sent a card every week. I knew it was coming. I could count on it. Every. Single. Week. It wasn’t what she said. She didn’t have profound words of wisdom, she simply just told me about her week and wished me well. Support during cancer is all about the long haul and that’s exactly what she knew. The second was from a woman that I knew through work. Someone that I can honestly say I didn’t even know her last name. I imagine that it was awkward for her to send the card. She probably wondered if I would even know who she was, but it was that very fact that meant so much to me. I’m telling you all of this to say you are never too far removed from someone to send a card. Don’t feel awkward about it. If you have it in your heart to reach out, do it. It is so powerful[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
