When someone is diagnosed with cancer, it’s difficult to know what to say.
That’s why charity Macmillan has teamed up with photo website Snapfish to create a range of greetings cards that go beyond the basic ‘thinking of you’.
The cards have messages put together by people at the charity to better fit the experience of being diagnosed with cancer.
The range features nine cards with different messages of support and personalised designs.
Each card starts at £1.25, with 5p of every card sold donated to Macmillan Cancer Support, to help the charity provide emotional, practical and financial support for people living with cancer, now and in the future.
Designs include a picture with the message ‘You’re amazing (with or without hair)’ and one which says ‘You’re still you (and I still love you)’.
Another features the stages of the moon and a message saying ‘one day at a time’.
One card has two coffee mugs and the message ‘I’m with you’ in a nod to Macmillan’s coffee morning event, which takes place in September.
Other cards aim to raise a laugh with a picture of a dog with some soapy water saying ‘You do you and I’ll do the dishes’.
Each one has a message on the back which says ‘This is a card to say I am thinking of you’.
The company has previously worked with the charity to raise funds by donating a portion of sales on certain products but this is the first time they have created a range of cards specifically to send to people living with cancer.
