Support This Project To Give Strength To Cancer Warriors
Warrior Cancer Cards is creating the world’s first personalized cancer card subscription to send printed cards to those fighting cancer. They are raising money on kickstarter. Recently I caught up with Bridgette Crull and Nanci Bauer to learn more about the effort; here’s what they told me:
What is the social benefit you hope to achieve with or through your crowdfunding campaign?
The social benefit of our campaign is that it brings continual love and support to individuals battling Cancer because Cancer doesn’t end when treatment does. I remember the times my mother smiled and laughed while she was battling Cancer. They were always when she received a card in the mail from a dear friend or they came to visit with card in hand. My mother kept every one of those cards and sometimes I would walk into her room and she would be asleep with a card lying on her chest. That’s why it’s so important to remember your Warrior through the entire process.
“Remember to still be there a few months after the diagnosis, when it’s not so new anymore. The fanfare will have died down, but your friend will still be struggling and needing logistical and emotional help.” ~ Elana Miller, MD
Warrior Cancer Card Prescription “fills” the need for continuous support for these warriors and is a way to send laughter and encouragement when you can’t find the words to say. We sign(print a message inside), seal, stamp and send all printed cards straight to the recipient each month. The Warrior motto is “Laughter is a medicine with no side effects.”

How much money are you hoping to raise and why? How much have you raised so far?
In addition to fulfilling pledges, money contributed to our campaign will be used to establish our LLC and trademarks, maintain our website, printing and manufacturing, purchase awesome typeface licenses, printers and ink to print your custom messages inside your Warrior Cancer Cards, media efforts, program updates, computer repair, shipping/handling, Kickstarter fees and to secure a location so that our kids can finally eat at the dining room table.
Whom are you trying to help with your project and why?
Mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts, uncles and children are all effected by Cancer. Unfortunately, Cancer is all around us. Whether you are near or far, this prescription can fill the need for support when you can’t be there. Every day is a battle for Cancer Warriors and supportive words and humor are what get them through the day.
What rewards, if any, are you offering to your supporters?
Our rewards include custom totes, mugs, temporary tattoos, posters, custom designed cancer cards, small business ad and link, and new collection collaboration.
