The story behind the site
Two years ago, I was in quarantine for a month due to acanthamoeba keratitis. During that time, I experienced an incredible amount of loneliness and anxiety, and so it meant the world to me whenever I received a get-well-soon card. There is something so powerful in receiving a physical note in a time of need—it shows that you’re not alone. Hence, I was inspired to create Notes for Support to show patients and healthcare workers that there are people out there who care.
