"I received my care package and first card when I started my own radiation therapy. It was as if the angels had sent it to me. I remember thinking "how much someone loved me" to send this to me. Then I found out it was Phil's Friends. I looked forward to the cards, small letters, and notes each time they came. They were moments of hope and they helped me gather courage. It was absolutely amazing to think a stranger had prayed for me; had taken the time to offer encouragement. I held all these so close to my heart and thanked God for each one. This is an incredible organization. Every time I meet someone in that same place on the journey with cancer, I return here so that they too may be offered hope. I pray always in your support and "I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers" Ephesians 1:16.
"I've received Cards of Hope from Phil's Friends since my cancer battle in 2016-17 and still find strength in receiving them. Many tests and scares still happen. I'm thankful for the cards and messages."
"Our son Brannon is gratefully four years out from finishing treatment for brain cancer. While he is doing well health wise, sadly he has lost most of his friends. At the age of 12, it has been hard on him ans he often gets lonely. He loves jokes and getting these cards in the mail. As his mom, I would like to continue anything I can to help put a smile on his face. Thank you."
"Thank You for your Ministry of Hope & Encouragement...Love & Prayers"
"Thank you so much for the fantastic care package. I am having surgery next week for breast cancer. Perfect timing as I just received the care package which was put together by such wonderful and caring people. It lifted my spirits knowing so many loving people are praying for me and wishing me well."
