Chemo Care Kit

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Cost Plus World Market. All opinions are my own.

When a close friend of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer, I didn't  know what to say, I didn't know what to do. I was afraid to say the wrong thing and I didn't know how to talk to her about it.  I offered to bring dinner, clean her house, watch her kids but it turned out, all she wanted was someone to listen to her and hold her hand while she navigated through this new normal. 
I am ecstatic to say her cancer  is now in remission. 
One of the most amazing things about going through trials in our life, is that it not only brings us closer to ourselves, but also to others. The sisterhood that comes from breast cancer survivors is an amazing gift. She has met some incredibly brave and strong women through this ugly disease. While these women go through chemo, we decided to put together chemo care packages for these incredible ladies. We talked about the simple joys and comforts she received during her treatments and she wanted to give a little bit of joy and distraction to her friends as they fight this horrible disease. 
We put together these chemo care kits with a few essential and comforting items for the ladies.
Tea and ginger chews for nausea, a comfortable robe, healthy snacks  like high protein almonds, lotion to nourish and soothe the skin, spa gifts like bath salts for a warm and relaxing bath, a pashmina shawl to be used as a head wrap or scarf and a notebook to write and keep the mind occupied. Instead of using a gift basket, we put everything together in a handy tote that she can carry with her to and from appointments.






I made a simple label and attached it to the care kit which you can download HERE




We all want this devastating disease to go away and as we fight it, we can spread a little comfort to those who are fighting the hardest.
