Tips For Every Age

  • Give funny cards to show support and add a little humor to brighten someone's day.

  • Simple gestures are the best—soups, easy meals that can be heated quickly.

  • The simpler the gesture, the less the patient tends to feel like a burden.

  • Gift certificates where people can get healthy food and fast are great—easy to just pick up and bring home.

  • Offer to do errands—food shopping, clean house, carpool for kids.

  • Transportation to and from treatments.

  • Make cookies.

  • Gift ideas—fun hats, tea, socks, video rental passes.

  • Give gifts with meaning. Several companies sell gifts to help inspire and support people with cancer. Companies also donate money to the cause.
