Cancer On Board
We provide badges for cancer patients, modelled on the “Baby on board” badges popular in London, to encourage people to make room on public transport for those undergoing treatment. Even the smallest amount of kindness might shine a tiny ray of sunshine onto what can be a horribly depressing time. Being offered help or support, without having to ask, might make all the difference to someone’s day.
Cancer patients don’t all lose their hair, so they are not always obvious. Everyone’s experience with cancer is different. If a little badge can help get somebody one step closer to the end of their treatment, or even just make them feel a bit better for five minutes, then its purpose has worked.
We don’t want anyone to feel pressured into wearing a badge, but knowing you have one in your pocket, just in case, can be a morale booster. Even if you don’t particularly need any help, somebody asking you how you are, or wishing you luck, can give you a real boost, and can turn a bad day into a better one.
