What to write on a card to someone who has cancer
These days, with technology ruling most of our lives, we all seem to have forgotten how to write simple notes on cards to friends and family. Be it a celebration, a death, or a note to someone who is sick, we have all forgotten the art of writing notes or even sending cards.
If it is a happy and joyous occasion like a birthday, anniversary or wedding or birth of a child, it is easy to write notes on cards and dispatch them. However, when it is a more serious occasion like a death or writing a note to someone who has a dreadful disease and is dying, many of us are often confused not knowing what to pen them.
We have recently come to now that someone close to us has cancer. We need to write a note on a card. What do we write on the card to someone who has cancer is a question many people ask. What you need to keep in mind is that sending them a get-well card with a small note saying “I am thinking of you” or “My prayers are with you” is certainly not appropriate.
People who are stricken with cancer know that they are beyond recovery and are slowly dying a painful death. Therefore writing them a “Get well soon” note is highly inappropriate.
Instead, if the person who has cancer is well known to you, then you could write a small note on how you are doing in life and you could add a funny anecdote, which both of you shared. This note will help them remember those funny moments and brighten up their life for a few minutes even in their moments of pain.
Ensure that what you write on the card is something light and interesting that is sure to help them feel better at least fir a short moment. People with cancer are already a depressed lot with lots of pain and agony, so you don’t want to add to their suffering do you?
You can write short notes, which help, elevate their spirits and keep them in a positive mood. Send them words of love that they are looking for.
