What Mandee's Lunchbox is all about...
Gift Cards for Cancer Patients
On July 17th, 2018 we lost our beautiful daughter / sister / wife to cancer. All through her battle Amanda had talked about how we could help people in the future going through the same battle. She wanted to help adults like herself. When Amanda passed away her mother and siblings talked about what we could do to make her dream happen. We wanted it to be personal, something that would scream "Amanda". We talked about how expensive cancer is, not just the hospitals and treatments but the travel, hotels and the food. Before Amanda would go in for her treatments she would love to pick up a coffee and doughnut, a taco or any other thing she had a taste for. We said wouldn't it be nice to get gift cards that patients could get a treat, or care takers and family could grab a bite to eat without digging into their wallets. Amanda was an avid tin lunch box collector, the top of her kitchen cabinets held over 80 boxes. Her youngest sister looked up and said why don't we call it "Mandee's Lunchbox". So the idea was born. We will be sending tiny tin lunch boxes with gift cards enclosed to hospitals and treatment centers to be given to adults and their families battling cancer.
To Date: (March 2023) Mandees Lunchbox has given out 1487 tiny tin lunchboxes to adults fighting cancer.
That is $74,350 in gift cards. We thank you for your help and also remind you: if you know any adult fighting cancer please send us their Name and Address so we can send a bit of cheer into their life.
