Artist Emily McDowell’s new line of ‘Empathy Cards’ is a personal triumph. At 24, Emily was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. As a cancer survivor, Emily wanted to create a series of cards that authentically communicated about suffering and illness. When she was sick, she found her friends and family struggled to find the right words to say and disappeared. These witty cards offer personal, warm and funny messages for those who don’t know what to say.
