Send a St. Jude Patient a Virtual Valentine's Day Card
This Valentine's Day, many of the young patients receiving life-saving cancer treatment at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital will be forced to miss out on card exchanges at school.
Fighting cancer is hard enough as it is, which is why St. Jude is making it easy for all of us to show these brave youngsters how much we care about them—even from halfway across the world.
On St. Jude's website, supporters are able to send virtual Valentine's Day cards to patients free of charge. You can choose from a selection of sweet e-cards featuring layouts inspired by patient art, with an option to either select a pre-written message or create your own. All the messages will be displayed on screens throughout the hospital.
