Dear Friend
 Letters of Encouragement, Humor, and Love for Women with Breast Cancer
Thursday, October 26th at 7 p.m. 

This beautiful collection of handwritten letters offers strength, encouragement, and comfort to women living with breast cancer. Written by compassionate strangers—many of whom have gone through their own health battles—these heartfelt letters were gathered by Girls Love Mail, an organization that provides support to people diagnosed with breast cancer as seen on NBC Nightly News. Presented in an elegant package with metallic end papers, and a ribbon marker, and brimming with warm messages of empathy, inspiration, and humor, Dear Friend delivers words of wisdom when they're needed the most.

About the Charity:
Girls Love Mail, the national charity featured on The NBC Nightly News, The Steve Harvey Show, People.com, and Today.com gives the gift of hand-written letters to women going through breast cancer treatment. Since August 2011, they’ve handed out over 100,000 letters – that’s 100,000 women helped by a kindness anyone can do. People across the country send in their hand-written notes to Girls Love Mail based in Sacramento, and then the organization gets them out through 160 hospital cancer centers across the country.

Book Talk & Letter Writing
Founder Gina L. Mulligan will give 20-minute talk about the charity and the lives they’ve touched. If available, local letter contributors will read their letters. Then the focus shifts to writing letters with the review of guidelines, tips, and samples. For the next 30-40 minutes, attendees will write their own letters, share their letters, and experience. The event is meant to be interactive and inspiring

Girls Love Mail will supply all stationary, pens, and materials. The charity will also bring clip boards for writing.

Gina L. Mulligan began her writing career over twenty years ago as a freelance journalist for national magazines. She is the author of two novels, REMEMBER THE LADIES and FROM ACROSS THE ROOM. She's won awards from the Abilene Writers Guild, San Francisco LitQuake, and the Soul-Making Keats Literary Competition.

After her own diagnosis, Gina founded GIRLS LOVE MAIL, a charity that collects handwritten letters of encouragement for women newly diagnosed with breast cancer. She has been featured on local and national media including the NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, The Steve Harvey Show, Woman’s Day magazine, Today.com, and People.com.

This event is FREE and everyone is invited.
