What is the Chronic Warrior Card Swap?

So glad you asked! The Card Swap is a free monthly event where those who live with long-term illness (aka chronic warriors)  send “snail mail” messages of hope and encouragement to one another. Warriors gets matched with two unique connections each month- one to send TO and one to receive FROM. To date, we’ve had participants from 21 countries. What are you waiting for?  Sign up today – the next card swap starts on the 1st!
