When I received the devastating diagnosis that my father had terminal cancer, if I had known about the Cancer Care Parcel‘s gift hamper then I would have purchased one in a heartbeat, anything that supports people through the difficult chemotherapy process is priceless.
My uncle has recently been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and he found the box extremely helpful for the long sessions at the hospital. He said: “The box has been extremely well thought out and provides everything you might need.”

What Is In The Comfort For Chemotherapy Gift Hamper?
Super Soft Neck Cushion: To stay comfortable during chemo, at home or on long journeys, we have included this supersoft neck cushion. Soft to the touch and filled with thousands of tiny microbeads which sculpt to the body’s shape providing fantastic support.
Teddy Snug: A blanket can be a nice comforter and is useful during chemotherapy. So we included a teddy snug throw in this chemotherapy gift to create a warm, cosy and comforting feeling during therapy, at the hospital or at home, in a chair, on the bed or sofa. Soft to feel just like a teddy bear. An essential item for a chemotherapy survival kit.
Bed Socks; Bed socks are a perfect solution to cold feet that can result from many cancer therapies. They also add a bit of extra cancer comfort when convalescing or just for “me time” at home.
Handwarmer: Hands can get cold at any time, but are particularly vulnerable to the cold after chemo. This fun hand warmer has a knitted cover that is a fox at the front and contains a reusable click to heat gel pack.
Magic Gloves: These soft gloves will also help to keep hands warm.
Sea Bans: The nausea which can be caused by chemotherapy treatment is well documented. These Sea Ban wristbands included in the chemotherapy gift box for are a clinically proven, drug-free alternative treatment for the control of nausea. By placing the acupressure band around the wrist the nausea symptoms subside and there are no side effects.
Ginger Chews: Ginger is a well-documented aid for chemo-induced nausea relief. These ginger chews are made from pieces of ginger root, which means they contain its natural active ingredients and are great natural solution to fight off nausea.
Malibu Lip Care: Chemotherapy can affect the skin’s natural moisture because it reduces the amount of oils that glands secrete. As a result, sore lips can be a common side effect of chemotherapy. This SPF30 moisturising lip protection will soothe and protect those dry lips.
