If a loved one has been diagnosed with breast cancer, we suggest allowing them the space and time to process that information as they learn to adjust their life accordingly. Once the shock settles, they may end up getting involved with cancer support groups or checking in more often with friends and family (learn How to Build a Give InKind Support Page for Someone Diagnosed with Breast Cancer).
At this time, one of the best ways to organize your support is by setting up a gift card train. Gift card trains are especially useful in the midst of a medical crisis, as they provide your recipient with immediate relief for essential entertainment, travel, or critical self-care opportunities.
Some might choose to purchase a medical gift, but that’s a gift that might only remind the recipient of their situation (It can end up being a gift that saddens them more than reassures them). Rather, gift cards that supplement the cost of entertainment, cozy new clothes, or unique family outings are of the utmost importance at this time.
