Being a parent every day is a challenge in and of itself, but when they are sick, it takes a toll on them mentally and physically. While the focus is on getting their child better, they also have needs too. It gets hard, but sometimes a gift will help boost them up to keep going. Oftentimes, they also end up sick too. Sending or dropping off a gift for them helps them see that they aren’t alone and gives them that push to keep going, even when they feel like there’s no hope for things to be normal again.
