Let’s face it. We’re all pretty much stuck for words when a friend says, “I’ve got cancer,” or some other serious illness. We’re also frequently stuck for the right words when someone dies.
For those times when you’re stuck, Emily McDowell, great illustrator and cancer survivor, has created a line of empathy cards at EmilyMcDowell.com, that brilliantly resonate with the person with the illness.
Her cards don’t try to paint a rosy picture and don’t feature a trite saying; instead they acknowledge the pain, fear and reality in a way that shows your compassion. Her sympathy cards are also pretty great.
Since she’s the only one we know offering this service, you might want to stock up right away. We know there’s a long line to get her cards.
