Our mission is to send encouragement and a smile to those who are impacted by cancer and their families and to remind people with cancer that no one is ever alone. When people are first diagnosed with cancer, they usually receive an out pouring of support. But often time when the reality starts to set in, this support dissipates and cancer patients can feel alone, forgotten, and just lonely. Cancer is a lonely illness and many times, this loneliness becomes hopeless. We fill in this need by ensuring that no one, regardless of socioeconomic or life circumstances, feel alone when they have cancer. We do this by sending a care package and weekly hand made cards to cancer patients. We bring light to cancer patients who might otherwise have heard nothing but bad news the rest of the day.
sending hope and light to those who are affected by cancer
