My friend Mary was telling me that she came across a great website, Chemo Angels, while digging around online and has been really moved by her experience participating in Chemo Angels. "I love to volunteer, but I've found it difficult to devote time right now being home with the kiddies," says Mary. But then she found Chemo Angels and now she can make a difference in someone's life without even leaving her home.
Chemo Angels is a volunteer organization dedicated to adding a ray of sunshine to the lives of those undergoing IV chemo treatment. Chemo Angels matches you up with a patient starting their chemo/radiation treatment and you commit to writing at least 1 letter per week until they have finished treatment. The purpose is to send them a positive, loving card just to let them know you are thinking of them and to brighten the lives of cancer patients while they are going through this challenging time. Visit the Chemo Angels' site to learn more.
