DonationsHeader

Today we received 5 new applicants for the Cards of Hope program.  We generally get 1-3 a week.  There are currently over 500 people worldwide enrolled in the program.  We are in desperate need of any and all donations.  One book of stamps ($9.40) helps us send out 20 cards to 20 people.  If we don’t get some donations in shortly, we may have to turn new people enrolling away.  We don’t want to ever have to do that.  Please consider donating something (stamps, cards, stickers, tattoos, bookmarks, jewelry, craft kits and etc) today.  *We also have an Amazon wishlist to make donating even easier* Here is a link to our donation page:  https://cards-of-hope.com/donations/  Thank you so much for your support!

  • A lump that has grown over the past weeks and/or months
  • Abdominal pain that doesn’t go away
  • Black tarry stools
  • Blood in stools or vomit

Keep in mind that even if you have 1 or all of these signs, doesn’t mean that you have Sarcoma.  It does mean that you should be checked out by your physician.

Multiple Myeloma awareness

Hello everyone!  March is almost over, but before it ends I wanted to go over some basic awareness for Multiple Myeloma.  March is also Multiple Myeloma awareness month.

Myeloma-Awareness-because-it-matters

Did you know that Multiple Myeloma is the 2nd most common blood cancer in the United States?  Most people are diagnosed after the age of 65 and it is very rare in people under 35 years of age.  More males than females get this cancer.  If you have a family history of this disease then you are at a more increased risk.

Below is a list of signs of Multiple Myeloma.  If you have these symptoms, please see your doctor to get tested.
