The idea for this business came to me one day during a highly emotional time. I was in a card shop trying to pick out a Father’s day card for what was going to be my dad’s last Father’s day. After a long battle battle with cancer he was near the end in palliative care. As I sifted through the many cards I burst into tears and ran out of the store. Feeling embarrassed as I couldn’t keep it together, I was also feeling frustrated as there just wasn’t any kind of appropriate card for the situation and thought to myself “sometimes there are no words” and later that day decided to create my own that said exactly that. Feeling so many others could probably relate I decided to create a line of cards that were simple yet heartfelt, which became Tender Heart Gift Co.’s signature line.

I felt so helpless with my dad’s terminal diagnosis. It was the worst feeling ever as I wasn’t able to do anything to change the outcome. By donating part of the proceeds from this shop to the Canadian Cancer Society I’m hoping in some small way I can make a difference. This project is definitely close to my heart and has been a creative outlet to help me deal with the grieving process.
