Tips for writing your Rays of Sunshine card

* Please keep cards encouraging and uplifting. Some patients will be experiencing a long duration of treatment and unknown outcomes.

o Please avoid phrases like "Get well soon" or "Feel better"

* Please avoid giving medical advice or treatment suggestions

* Cancer does not discriminate by gender, beliefs, or race and neither do we! Please keep your cards inclusive to all.

* You are welcome to include inspiring quotes, funny jokes (humor is always appreciated!), or little pieces of yourself.

* Here are some great examples of messages:

o Stay strong

o You are awesome

o I hope you have a good day

o You are amazing

o You are brave

o I believe in you

* Feel free to write as much or as little as you want and include your first name and where you're from if you're comfortable doing so. Cards and messages can be short or long - anything is appreciated!

Mission Statement

Amy's Rays of Sunshine seeks to provide encouragement, positivity, and hope to young adult patients during bone marrow transplants by giving them a box of handwritten cards, notes, and other items during this physically and emotionally challenging time.

Description

Amy's Rays of Sunshine is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization founded by Amy Steeves to pay forward the love and support that she received from her amazing community during her own bone marrow transplant in 2019.

During a bone marrow transplant, patients undergo a prolonged period of isolation while their body is healing. The physical recovery can last for months and be an emotionally difficult and isolating time.

Amy’s Rays of Sunshine gives young adult patients at Duke who are starting their bone marrow transplant a box of 90 inspirational and caring messages so that they can have something to lift their spirits and brighten their day during this challenging 90-day period.
