A few years back I heard about this program in which you write letters and send cards to people who are going through Chemo due to cancer and I checked it out.
I then joined the group and have enjoyed participating in it. I write a letter at least twice a week and talk about stuff that is uplifting and funny, something that will help the person feel better while they are going through a hard time. And having been through chemo, I know what it is like and a person going through it needs all the help they can get. Try it.... You'll like it!
