The reason for every item in these Cancer Care Packages
Having been there, we understand the chaos that ensues a cancer diagnosis. We've seen many in our immediate family fight through cancer treatment. We spent months in the hospital. We cared for a mom, a dad, uncles... too many. We learned to celebrate the good moments.
Sometimes we couldn't be there physically to help. That was frustrating because there was a need for help but we didn't know how to give it.
So we set out to figure out how to assist chemo and cancer patients and caregivers in an easily deliverable, super-useful package.
A package that will not promise anything grand like taking care of all needs but one that delivers a tool-kit to experiment with and carry loved ones through the chaos and confusion of not knowing what will be needed.
We are practicality-focused, type-A sort of family that appreciates value and getting to the point.
We research, have experience, read and speak to people going through treatment. We listen carefully to former patients whom have advice from experience. We consulted medical professionals in oral care and medicine.
The conclusion of our research was clear. Patients and caregivers almost universally recommended preparing ahead, experimenting with symptom-relief tools and fostering a supportive community.
The tools and products in these cancer care gift packages are there to give a caregiver and patient a tool-kit to experiment with.
For some people Advil does nothing while for another it helps much more than Tylenol. The same goes for teas, foods, snacks, lotions, scents... What works for some does not for others. We focused on the products that cancer patients pointed out as being either hands down - needed, or products that worked great for many.
Please consult your medical professional before changing your routine. Experiment with the items in this kit slowly and see how you react. We sincerely hope our kits help.
