Earlier this week our EndNotes column addressed the situation of inappropriate cards: “get well” cards sent to a person who may be terminally or chronically ill. A colleague of mine reminded me of a company that does create cards of comfort for situations where the traditional get well card is what you don’t want to send.
Stroke of the Heart is a Minnesota-based company with a variety of cards – including sympathy cards to send when a family pet dies. The company’s founder, Kevyn Riley, is a nurse and cancer survivor who has worked with seriously ill children. She has used her experience to create a company that allows us to comfort others in an authentic and compassionate manner.
