When a friend or family member hears the words "You have cancer", you know that everything is not all right in their world. A cancer diagnosis can be a huge shock to everyone around them too. And you want to do something that lets your friend know that you are thinking of them. So you give a gift. But it can't just be any gift. This gift has to convey the message that you have thought about what they are about to face or are already going through. It has to say that it has come from your heart. It has to nourish their body as well as nurture your heart.
Here are some give ideas for you to be able to express the love you feel for your friend. Click on the logos to be taken to their sites.
Kit For Cancer - The Kit Foundation
Kit for Cancer is a hand-curated support pack. It’s made by cancer patients for patients. So we know it’s filled with all the practical & comfort things we all actually need the minute we hear the words YOU. HAVE. CANCER.
KIT is a curation of essential things, comfort things and fun things to help people with cancer whittle away the dull moments, pup up the good ones, and most of all enjoy the ride. Wait, did we say "enjoy" in the same sentence as cancer? Yeah, we did!
Pyjamas that keep your body at the perfect temperature for the best nights sleep you will ever have.
Sleep is when your body repairs itself and builds up energy for the next day. When you are sick, our body can struggle to regulate temperature and you can suffer from night sweats. And if you are not able to cool down during the night, you won't have a good night's sleep. When you have cancer, you need good night's rest for your health's sake. Thankfully the technology behind Cool-jams pyjamas means you can sleep at the perfect temperature every night and wake up energised.
