Default What about thank you cards?

I've been a chemo angel longer than I've heard of SCS. My fridge door is full of pictures of my previous buddies. The first one is a breast cancer survivor. I was fortunate to meet a 5 year old buddy after he graduated from the program (no more chemo needed); he and his family vacationed here in my area! Now he's 8.

Special Assignments Angels also send birthday cards (there's a monthly birthday list), thinking-of-you cards, encouragement cards, holiday cards, to other patients. And sadly, sympathy cards too to some of the families.

Two kinds of cards NOT recommended are "get well" and "good luck". Sometimes the patient knows he won't get well. So avoid these two phrases, okay?

Patients are all ages from little children, teens, adults, to senior citizens. Some like scripture, some have no religion --- the organization knows which.

Any questions? Ask here. I'm sure other SCS Chemo Angels will pop in here.
Can they use thank you cards?
