Deliver Letters of Love
Support a Child with Cancer this Holiday Season
Support a Child with Cancer
Who can forget the iconic scene in Miracle on 34th Street, when the lawyer Fred Gailey has hundreds of letters delivered to the court, written by children who believe in Santa Claus?
This holiday season, make a lasting gift of kindness by helping I See Me! deliver thousands of letters to children supported by the Children’s Cancer Research Fund. When we come together in the holiday spirit, we can make a difference.
And for every 50 letters received, we will donate a copy of our new personalized storybook My Very Own® Christmas or a copy of A Hanukkah Bear for Me to a child supported by CCRF.
In mid-December, we will send these messages to the nonprofit, where they will be delivered to the children. Thank you for helping us spread the holiday spirit! The difference is you.
See how you are making a difference... Read samples of letters below.
Hey little fighter. Things will get brighter soon. You may have cancer, but cancer doesn't have you.
Hello, I wanted to write you and let you know that you are not alone in this fight. So many people think, love and care about you! My name is Paxton and I am 9 months old. I too, am fighting cancer. I started my battle with retinoblastoma at the age of 4 months. I receive monthly chemotherapy and had my right eye removed just days after diagnoses. I know it's hard spending days and nights and holidays in the hospital, but stay strong!! We love you and wish and hope all the best!!! We can do this!
Wishing you all of the joy and hope of the holiday season. You're a hero, and I hope the new year brings you only good things.
I am a mother. I am writing to you because I want you to know that it's okay to be happy. To be angry. To be sad. To be scared. But every day is a chance to tell cancer: you will not win my spirit. Not me. Not today: not any day. You are so brave and strong. I hope each day you find a reason to laugh, to dream, to live and to love. Sending you hugs and high fives from across the miles xoxo
Dear little friend. You are brave, strong, and a warrior! I admire your courage and determination to win this battle and beat the disease. I know some days are hard. Really hard. But know that you have an army of support standing by your side, cheering you on, loving you, and sending positive light and energy your way. Not to mention lots of prayers. Wishing you all the joy and miracles of the holiday season.

Remember you are always surrounded by love and you are not alone in the challenges you face day to day. Warmest Wishes to you and your family.
I admire how well you are handling all the things you are going through. I am a grownup who has had cancer three times. I know it can be scary but God sends us good people to help take care of us and make us feel better. He did that for me and he will do that for you too.
It takes someone who is strong, brave, and downright amazing to be able go through what you do every day without giving up. I know it isn't fair, I know it's hard, but you are loved and you are so brave. You will make it through this because you are a superhero! You are not alone. Stay strong and never lose your smile or hope. I'm sending love and hugs to you and your family.
I think your super awesome! I wish the very best for you. I admire how strong you are and how amazing you been working through this. Every day counts and some days may not be the best, a lot more great ones will come. Keep on going, we are behind you all the way.

My family and I know what you are going through. My 18-month old son was diagnosed with ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) many years ago. There will be many trials and tribulations and there will always be lots of people around you who will love and support you through everything. You are not alone in this. Lean on everyone and cry if you need to. It is not a sign of weakness. We love you and hope that everything goes well for you and that you have an awesome Christmas!! P.S. My son is now 39 years old and has a wife and two children, still having his yearly checkups and doing great!!
Dear Sweet Brave Angel, I just wanted to let you know that my entire circle of family and friends are thinking of you and sending you warm wishes. You are so very special. Did you know that? Well, you are! It's an honor for me to write to YOU. You may not know me, not ever see me--but I feel so lucky to be able to send you some holiday cheer. You've made my day and I hope I can make yours. I want you to think of the brightest star in the sky, if you're able-go look for one, find a picture in a book or online. Why? Because the night hold a bit of magic...and whenever you need to talk or want to make a wish---remember that star. It's yours. I hope you have a great holiday. I hope that you find that no matter how old you are, that there IS such a thing as Christmas magic. Just believe. Never stop believing. Happy holidays brave soul. People all over the world are rooting for you. Stay strong. Stay brave.
Hello, I am a cancer survivor. It is hard to go through what you are going through now, but hope is alive especially at Christmas. I will be praying for you and all of those who are facing cancer. Never give up. There are amazing doctors and nurses doing amazing things every day and you are now a part of that story. Great things are still ahead. I am 53 years old and I go ice skating every week and hiking and camping. There is so much to fight for and to look forward to. Stay strong and lean on those around you for support. Love much and laugh often. Blessings.
Dear Warrior, When ever my daughter has to do something hard (like her blood work or X-rays) I tell her "you've got this...your going to rock it!" And afterwards I say "You rocked it - high five!!" So just remember when you're doing something hard or having a hard day that a little family is praying for you and cheering you on. "You've got this.. you're going to rock it!!!"
I know you are in a scary situation. You are probably scared or you are being strong for your family. Both reactions are normal. You may alternate from being strong to being scared and that is ok too. It is ok to cry, scream and question "Why is this happening to me"? My heart hurts for you but don't give up no matter what you are experiencing. You have many people that love you. Be strong and courageous!

There is no superhero out there... not Batman, not Spiderman... not anyone who is braver than you are!! Just look around you and see how many people love you! You are a loved superhero!! You are the best!
I'm having a hard time thinking of something to say. What an amazing person you are. I'm writing a real life hero. Someone who is strong and resilient someone who fights every second of everyday yet still finds the beauty in things like flowers or a really good hug. I hope you know how strong you are. I hope you know your a super hero battling daily and I'm your biggest fan. Why? Because from you I learn how strong things come in small packages. Keep fighting an I'll keep cheering you on!
I don't know you, and I don't know if I ever will, but I want you to know that your life is worth so much. It is the things we struggle to earn and to keep that are worth the most, and I know as you defeat cancer... your life will mean even more to you. People pray for you every day. Doctors and angels are working around you to make you better. You are strong. You are a hero. You can do this! My friend always used to say "Be miserable or motivate yourself. You decide." And I know that is always true! Remember that no matter what happens each day only you can decide how you feel. As you choose to move forward... laugh, and even love those around you. It will make what you are going through so much easier. Be motivated! Remember to smile. Don't miss all of the little and beautiful things in each day. You are so strong and I know you can defeat cancer. In fact, cancer doesn't stand a chance! This is your life and I want you to hold on to it with everything you have! I look up to you so much. Sincerely,
Dear Young Man or Lady, I understand you have not been feeling well I just want to say how brave and strong you are! I know some days are better than others for you and I want you to know that you and many children like you have inspired so many people, like me, to learn more about this illness you are facing. I recently registered to be a match for bone marrow donation. I don't know what type of cancer you have, but every day doctor's are coming closer to a cure! Someday, the world will be cancer free, and it's because of the courageous young people just like you. Enjoy every moment of every day and fill it with as much love and laughter as you can! May your Holidays and every day be cheery and bright!
I am SO proud of you. The fighter in you is unlike any Super Hero that I have seen and that is to be admired. I hope this Holiday season, and always, you let your smile light up the room like I know it can. Be brave little one! The world is waiting for you!
