The prescription that EVERYONE with Cancer needs filled. A thoughtful, often cheeky card sent to them each week or month that makes them laugh, feel loved and know they are not forgotten. We sign, seal, stamp and send all printed cards straight to the recipient. Our motto is "Laughter is a medicine with no side effects." Please share with friends and complete strangers to help this project bring a little laughter and sometimes inappropriate messages to those fighting like hell every day.

"Remember to still be there a few months after the diagnosis, when it's not so new anymore. The fanfare will have died down, but your friend will still be struggling and needing logistical and emotional help." ~ Elana Miller, MD

THE INSPIRATION

I remember the times my mother smiled and laughed while she was battling Cancer. They were always when she received a card in the mail from a dear friend or they came to visit with card in hand. When she had to be hospitalized weeks at a time, we were told not to bring flowers on her floor due to Cancer patients immune system. Once again, I noticed the joy and happiness everyone on the floor received when the mail was delivered to their rooms and they opened that card and read those words of support and love.

My mother kept every one of those cards and sometimes I would walk into her room and she would be asleep with a card lying on her chest. I realized then that words carry power and can bring laughter and joy to people who sometimes struggle to get through the day.

My mother may have physically missed special moments in all of her children’s life, such as weddings and the birth of her grandchildren, but her sense of style, humor and laughter lives on in our Warrior Cancer Cards.
