  1. What a wonderful way to brighten someone’s day! I am going to link back to this page in a group e-mail to friends and family as well as print the page out and hang it at work. Thank you!

  2. I am a nurse at a local hospital, I will print this out and share it with the others to pass the word on to patients and families.

    • Thank you, Keith, for helping to spread the word about these wonderful free programs available to cancer patients!

  3. his is amazing that there are companies that will help people in need or just down on their day with something so good. I have heard of Lump for Laughter but didn’t know they offered this. Thank you for sharing about these wonderful organizations.

  4. I was trying to find a form for the beauty of hope bag. I just had my double mastectomy Sept 12th without reconstruction surgery. This is all new to me. I am not very good with computers.

  5. I have been diagnosed with malignant melanoma. I will have have surgery, sentinel lymph node dissection and chemo or immunotherapy after results. I wish there were more for skin cancer as skin cancer is a cancer and affects many. I’m having trouble finding sites for support and services.

  6. Wow! Incredible to see so many amazing organizations working to bring care packages to patients in various places. For anyone based in Maryland or in the United States, Kits to Heart (kitstoheart.org) is also a free option for cancer patients of all ages and diagnoses 🙂
