Cards for Melody

Post by Jynell Tackett for the Kind Kindred series.

Two years ago, at the age of 40, my step-mom (Melody) was diagnosed with colorectal cancer. After surgery and chemotherapy, she was in remission, but continued to battle with pain that has been debilitating and caused her missed out on many events. Despite this, she has tried to maintain a positive attitude.

In November, two new spots of cancer were found, and she began radiation and oral chemo.

Two years ago when the cancer was first discovered, I did a get well card drive and collected get well cards from family, friends, and strangers. Melody LOVES cards! Seeing how uplifting those cards were to her inspired me to launch a world-wide card drive to collect even more than before! It is so powerful knowing that so many people are praying for/thinking of Melody!

Over the last two months, she has received cards from so many different people and businesses. Melody has received cards from almost every state in the US and all over the world! Will you send Melody a card, too?

Cards can be mailed to:

Melody R

PO Box 697

Portage, MI 49081

Thank you from the bottom of my heart,


Please follow Melody’s journey on Facebook.
