Treatments for chemo affect so many parts of one's body... I can't think of anything that wasn't affected! Using myself as a guide, I put this care package together with discomfort, nausea, and emotional support in mind. Included is a chemo port pillow, which is a seatbelt pillow that protects the port (it can also be used for other surgical areas). The eye pillow is weighted and creates an amazing level of relaxation and calming while placed over the eyes while lying down. The neck wrap can be heated to help with muscle relaxation or chilled to help with inflammation (not just for the neck!). Both neck wraps and eye pillows can be purchased unscented or with lavender as aromatherapy. The Queasy Drops are for nausea. The cancer journal for emotional processing. Finally, the bracelet is a reminder of support and love. All together, they make a much appreciated gift for a loved one who is dealing with chemotherapy.
CHEMO PORT SEAT BELT PILLOWS:
* With the chemo port seat belt pillow, the two strap attachments secure the pillow in two places so that it doesn’t move. No more fidgeting with the pillow to keep it in place!
*The pillow provides a comfortable cushion without adding pressure to the surgery area.
*Pillows are machine washable in cold water and can be tumble dried on low. Washes best with velcro pieces closed and then pillows are placed inside a laundry bag while washing.
*Made with 100% cotton and filled with 100% polyester fiber fill.
MY CANCER JOURNEY' JOURNAL: Why Journal? The act of writing one’s thoughts down is a therapeutic way to help one heal and improve one’s overall health. Research shows that spending just twenty minutes a day to write down thoughts have a positive effect on one’s health
QUEASY DROPS: Queasy Drops are an excellent way to ease the stomach and help with dry mouth as a result of chemo treatments. They are made with only natural ingredients, doctor recommended, drug free, and safe for kids and adults
CANCER AWARENESS BRACELET: When going through treatments, I always had something on me reflecting my support for cancer awareness. This Cancer Awareness Bracelet is engraved with ribbons and the words “Support, Cure, Hope, Courage”. It is approximately 9” in circumference and is sterling silver plated.
EYE PILLOWS AND NECK WRAPS:
* Eye Pillows: Approximately 4 1/2” x 9”, weight approximately 9 ounces
* Neck Wraps: Approximately 5” x 22”, weight approximately 22 ounces
*Heating in microwave helps to ease muscle aches and relieve stress.
*Chill in the freezer and apply to inflamed area to help reduce inflammation.
*Detailed direction for using and caring for the eye pillow and neck wrap are on the back of the labels.
*I use mostly soft 100% cotton or cotton flannel. They are also lined with 100% cotton. I use cotton because it is durable and can withstand the heating and freezing process.
*All pillows and wraps are double stitched, on the inside and outside. This is done to help ensure they maintain their structural integrity.
*The lining not only makes the pillows and wraps more durable, it also contributes to the easy flow and movement of the flaxseed. It allows them to easily mold to the area of use.
I USE ONLY ORGANIC FLAXSEED AND OPTIONAL ORGANIC LAVENDER… WHY?
*I prefer organic flaxseed so that toxic chemicals are not released when heated in the microwave.
*The flaxseed has a high oil base which enables it to retain heat longer than other commonly used fillers such as rice, buckwheat, corn, etc. Heat last approximately 30 - 45 minutes. It can also be microwaved over and over again.
*Flaxseed does not form hard clumps during the freezing process. Other commonly used fillers have a high water volume which causes clumping. The higher oil content in flaxseed keeps the seeds flowing smoothly and molds to the area of use.
CARD: A blank card is included. If you would like a handwritten note on your card, there is a box provided allowing you to write the note. I will write it out as written. Please remember to write the recipients name as well as the senders.

This gift was amazing- I had it sent to my aunt currently going through chemo and on her second battle of a different cancer unfortunately. She absolutely LOVED this - I applaud this idea and am very thankful this was an option I could send to her. And the port pillow was an amazing idea that provides her comfort during travel. Thank you!
