We hope that one of your New Year resolutions might be to write a letter to a friend or relative who is currently undergoing cancer treatment.
Even a letter a month would only be 12 letters a year and to make it easier you can also send cards. Not Another Bunch Of Flowers has a great range of cards just for cancer patients, combining humour and warmth. Or visit your local stationery shop and choose some beautiful paper.
