Mail it Monday: Chemo Angels

Today on Mail It Monday, I have a guest who is sharing an amazing organization. Tracey Sweeney shared Chemo Angels with me a few months ago and I knew that she needed to share it with everyone! This is a truly wonderful organization that sends encouragement to those dealing with chemotherapy treatments for their cancer. Tracey's heart for spreading love and encouragement shines through in what she shares below. My heart is so touched and I know that many of you will wish to be a part of this!

From Tracey Sweeney:
"Five years ago, while blog surfing, I stumbled upon Chemo Angels, a program that offers support to those who find themselves in the most challenging situation of their lives – battling a cancer diagnosis and undergoing chemo treatment. Having known WAY too many people (as I’m sure we all have) who have battled cancer, I knew immediately that this was a program I wanted to be a part of. 

Without hesitation, I signed up as a volunteer ‘angel’ and anxiously awaited my first assignment.
‘Angels’ support their ‘buddy’ throughout their battle with weekly cards (store bought or handmade), uplifting messages, and lots of positive energy so that they are not alone in their fight. 'Buddies' are required to check in monthly with admin, but they are not required in any way to respond to their angels – so if you’re looking for a pen pal, then this is not the program for you. If you are, however, looking to brighten someone’s week, provide encouragement, kindness, and love to a complete stranger – then sign yourself up, you are meant to be an angel!

Personally, this has been the most rewarding program I have ever been a part of. I am a big believer in spreading kindness, paying it forward, and simply doing something nice for someone without expecting anything in return.

Over the years I have been extremely lucky that some of my 'buddies' (or their family members) have made contact with me, so I know firsthand that this program TRULY does make a difference…all for the cost of some stationary, a postage stamp, and a few encouraging words.

If you would like to learn more about the Chemo Angels program, please head over to their website at and check them out!

(While you’re there, make sure you check out the Senior Angels section of the website as well – it’s the AMAZING sister program to Chemo Angels!).

I can’t think of a better reason to send something on Mail It Monday – can you?


Yes, Chemo Angels is a way to make someone's day with mail. And an incredible way to make a difference in the world with a card! I have goosebumps reading this, my heart is so touched. Please consider adding your talents to this amazing group!

Sincerely Yours,
