Sick Kids, Gifts & Thank You Notes: What To Expect

Parents of sick children are extremely appreciative of gifts given their children by friends, families, and communities. The value of these supportive gestures is hard to overstate.

When people give children presents during the course of illness and treatment, these gifts are a mercy. They distract from uncomfortable treatments. They break up the monotony of a day.

Still more importantly, these gifts acknowledge the challenge of the courageous fight a child faces.

They honor a unique bravery these children are forced to call up and discover within themselves – far sooner than they should.

What these gifts do not call up are thank you notes.

Most people, I believe, understand this when giving a present in such circumstances. I was surprised to find that parents of sick kids worry about this.

But the parents of sick kids do worry about a perception that these efforts aren’t appreciated.

Parents of sick children worry that their inability to respond to these gifts with a bread and butter note will be misconstrued.

These mothers and fathers want to say thank you.

Why do we use it?

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English.

Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
