A website dedicated to encouraging people to write to their loved ones who have cancer to counter the potential isolation that can be all too common:

Something as simple as receiving a letter can make the world of difference to a friend or family member suffering from cancer. We all too often hear that emotional support disappears as patients embark on surgery and treatment, as those close to them just don’t know what to say or how to communicate.

            We hope that our story will inspire you to put pen to paper, and our Writing Tips give you ideas on what to write, or that you’ll be able to join us at one of our Workshops and write that first letter.

            It’s only the cost of a stamp but the effect on the person receiving your letter will be immeasurable.
