Mollie has been so lucky to have wonderful chemo angels. Every week for the past year, the chemo angels have sent a card or small gift for Mollie. We don't usually write back (it is so hard to find the time!), but Mollie talks about her chemo angels often and she truly appreciates getting those special packages in the mail. I think Mollie realizes this is more than the special treats- it is knowing that someone is thinking about her and taking the time to show they care.
Mollie's tenure with chemo angels has ended- due to the long duration of treatment, they can only support leukemia patients for one year. But Angel Susan and her daughter sent Mollie a special Valentine package that brightened her day yesterday!! They are such thoughtful, caring people.
If you have the time and energy, please consider being a chemo angel for someone else. It is a big commitment (the program administrators check in monthly to make sure the angels are sending something every week), but it is such a wonderful program that really makes a difference in the lives of cancer patients.
