Kind Words

It was so nice that someone took the time to make cards for our patients and families.  They were very detailed and clearly made with love.  I hope I will be able to give them out again if more are made in the future.

It was really kind and considerate.  It made me smile.

It literally made the parents’ day.  They commented on how beautiful the cards were and how nice it was for someone to think of them.  I had one parent start to cry.  She was so touched.

Hi Christina,

I just wanted to reach out and personally thank you for your efforts and beautiful cards.  Although not children, our adult patients are still our “babies” and every bit deserving of the special touches.  The cards have been used to send a congratulations and thinking of you.  I just want to reach out to you and all of those involved in making these beautiful cards to say thank you.  Your thoughtfulness is making a difference!

I would like to thank each and everyone of you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to create such amazing and vivid cards that are so inspirational. I wish you could see the smiles and the impact your cards have on everyone. For many patients it made their day, while for others it went beyond that.
