About Us

During the twelve years that I spent treating cancer patients, I saw that there were no good gifts available for delivery to a cancer patient in the hospital. What do you send a patient that can’t have flowers, cookies or fruit?

As a radiation therapist, I got to know my patients very well during their weeks of treatment. I began to see that there was a disconnect that often happened between the patient and the friends who wanted to help but didn’t know what to do or say.

I decided to find a solution to bridge the gap between patients and loved ones, to offer friends a way to help, and to make the patient feel loved and appreciated. Thus, Out of the Blue Delivered was born.

In creating Out of the Blue Delivered, I wanted to take the concept one step further and offer gifts for ALL the difficult life events. Therefore, on our website you will find gifts for all the tough stuff in life (as well as for the celebratory moments).

I absolutely LOVE this company because it gives on so many levels- It helps the customer give a gift that is truly unique and/or useful – It helps the recipient to feel special by receiving a gift that was personally chosen just for them – It helps friends and loved ones communicate during difficult times such as diagnosis/treatment of cancer (a time where there is often a gap because people don’t know what to do or say when a friend is confronted with this disease) – It gives the artists the freedom to create and an outlet to share that with others – It helps our economy because we only sell goods made (or altered) in the USA (plus a few made in Canada) – and lastly, Out of the Blue Delivered allows me to continue to help others.

Timeline: In January 2008, I decided to go for it and make my dream into a reality. I began assembling artists and products. In March, I started doing events and getting the word out. In May the website was up and in trial mode. By the end of July we were fully functional.

Thank you to all of you who supported us along the way…to our wonderful clients who return again and again and who tell others about us… to those of you whose spirits have been uplifted by gifts you’ve received… and of course, to our artists because without you none of this would be possible!

Now that you know how we came to be, isn’t it about time you sent someone a gift “Out of the Blue”?
