After Her Breast Cancer Diagnosis, This Author Created an Encouragement Program Called “Girls Love Mail”The Breast Cancer Site
If anyone knows the power of the written word, it's author Gina Mulligan. After being diagnosed with breast cancer, Mulligan was surprised to receive hundreds of handwritten notes of support and encouragement – not just from family and friends, but from complete strangers. What shocked her even more was discovering how great of an impact these letters had on her spirit and morale during her fight. Realizing the resoundingly positive effect of these letters, Mulligan created Girls Love Mail, a volunteer effort that sends handwritten letters offering support and encouragement to newly diagnosed breast cancer patients.
