Empathy Cards

Support cards for people with serious illnesses

The maker of these cards, Emily McDowell, is a cancer survivor herself, and created this range of greetings cards for situations when 'get well soon' might not be appropriate. She wrote a lovely blog post about it here: http://info.emilymcdowell.com/em...
Very thoughtful. I think many people find illness to be a very difficult topic to approach, and having watched a few documentaries on cancer patients, it's pretty clear how much they really loathe a lot of the standard sentiments. Beautiful illustrations with just the right amount of snark. Love.
This is great. Reminds me of the results of ask.io (no longer around), where users sent over 100 cards to a woman in the hospital. http://technical.ly/philly/2013/...
