I don’t know what to say

It’s difficult to know isn’t it?

More people than not ask us for advice about what to say to someone has been diagnosed or is going through treatment or had received news that isn’t as good as they would wish it to be.

As usual at Jennifer Young & Beauty Despite Cancer we have been looking for a way to help to solve this dilemma. Our answer – our Unique Gifting Service and Vegan Unique Gifting Service.

The unique gifting services offers a choice of packaging and cards design to accompany your gift. These designs have been chosen by Jennifer Young, by drawing upon her many years of learning from those affected by cancer. 

“We have delivered more gifts to cancer patients than I can count. Most of those gifts have been accompanied by messages which I love to read. Sometimes the message will prompt the despatch team to add an extra gift, from us". 

I remember meeting a lady who attended my workshop at a Harley Street Cancer Hospital. She told me that her gift contained two messages. The first, and most important, ‘Happy Birthday Mummy. I hope you like this. Love from Lucy’. The second “Dear Lucy, we want to wish your mummy a happy birthday as well. We have included some extra gifts from us. We hope that is ok. Love from Team JY".

Our 6 designs, chosen to accompany the bespoke gift, are inspired by the gift messages, entrusted to us by our clients. They reflect the support, love and encouragement that accompany every purchase.

You’ve got this – is one of the most used phrases to appear in our messages. There is an almost universal respect for the dignity with which those living with and beyond cancer deal with, not only their diagnosis, but the rest of their lives.

This respect is also communicated by the messages ‘Brave and Beautiful’ – all of those we help are beautiful inside and out – and ‘Bring it On’ – a message of determined defiance.

‘& Breathe’ acknowledges the trauma and shock of a diagnosis, or the many demands made when one is undergoing treatment.

‘Sent with warmth and love’ and ‘Thinking of you’ are simple messages to let the recipient know that they are not forgotten. 

Now you know what to say.
