Going into a new week smiling and with so much gratitude having received this message and gift from Mandy who received a gift pack from our charity The Lewis Foundation whilst at Leicester's Hospitals.
"I just wanted to thank you for the gift bag that I received yesterday at the Leicester Royal Infirmary when I had my chemotherapy.
I had a very traumatic time as I hate needles at the best of times and my hand is still sore and scarred from the previous cannula two weeks ago, the nurses were wonderful and calmed me down and it was then lovely to receive a gift bag from The Lewis Foundation.
When I got home I opened my gift bag to find a magazine, a luxury I don’t usually indulge in, there were lots of stories and puzzles to keep me going for the next few days and an added bonus of a bag of sweets (chocolate limes - one of my favourites).
It was also nice to receive a card written by one of your supporters which I will keep in my memory box, and information on the foundation too.
Thank you for bringing a bit of sunshine to what was a very difficult day for me. "
Never forget you can change someone's entire day with a small act of kindness.
