I am a card angel in Chemo Angels and have been for over 3 years. Every week (or more) I send a card with a note to my assigned patient who has cancer. You go into this with a happy heart and expect nothing in return - your return is that you know you have put a smile on someones face. I got a new assignment in December (after my precious little 8 year old passed away), and I asked for an adult as I just didn't think I was ready to open my heart to another little one yet. I got a 55 year lady with breast cancer, so for Valentines Day I had a clear pail that I filled with pink and red goodies including valentine socks, little red teddybear angel, red tic-tacs, red chewing gum, pink emery board, pink and red nail polish, red notebook, and of course CHOCOLATE. I decorated the lid and the outside of the tin with Valentine images and sent it to her this past weekend. I hope this brings a smile to her face during this difficult time for her.
