Bags of Cheer

The U-M Cancer Center Volunteer and Community Resources Program is seeking your help creating Valentine’s Day ‘Bags of Cheer’ for adult cancer patients being treated at any of our locations.

Here's how you can help!

Make valentine cards appropriate for adult patients. They don’t have to be fancy . . . it’s the thought that counts!

General Guidelines for the cards:

  • Cards must be no larger than 5x7 to fit in to bag
  • No store bought cards please
  • Avoid religious references to allow distribution to all of our diverse patient groups
  • Avoid "Get well soon!" messages; though messages of hope and cheer such as "I'm thinking of you", or "Hoping you have a great day", are appreciated.
  • No glitter on cards for safety reasons
  • No food attached to cards
  • Do not place cards in envelopes
  • Remember to sign each card with a first name or name of group or just "Happy Valentine’s Day!"
