Wanda was diagnosed with breast cancer on her birthday, five years ago. Before she headed home to cake and candles, her doctor told her what to expect: radiation, chemotherapy, surgery — and plenty of medical bills.
Over the next few weeks, Wanda found out that fighting cancer is about more than just medical treatment. She needed support, love, and kindness — she needed comfort. And Wanda's not alone — 1.6 million people in this country are diagnosed with cancer each year.
For these patients, the smallest gesture from a friend or coworker can mean the world. And when strangers offer random acts of comfort, it helps alleviate the isolation felt by those affected by this disease.
Together, we can help make sure that nobody faces the fight against cancer alone. You can offer random acts of comfort to cancer patients, whenever and wherever you can — whether they're friends or strangers. You can provide a shoulder to lean on, a hand to reach out to, a kind word and a smile.
Start with a moment of kindness today — pledge to practice random acts of comfort for cancer patients in need.
