This month, we sent gift cards to 45 people who are facing cancer. In all of 2021, we sent gift cards to 595 people who are facing cancer.

Ten years ago I asked for gift cards for my 40th birthday so I could send them to people facing cancer, simply to brighten their day. I collected $1,800 worth and The Cancer Card Xchange began.

I was referred to MD Anderson in Houston, TX. On our first visit there, dear friends arranged for a gift card to be waiting at a local Mexican restaurant. A...
