Childhood Cancer is difficult, especially when the child doesn’t understand everything that is happening. I put together a Cancer Care Package for boys with get well gifts that I carefully selected to give some relief, both physically and emotionally while going through cancer treatments.
As a cancer survivor, I have first hand experience, however, not everyone’s treatments and reactions to treatments are the same. After doing much research, I chose the following items to add to the care package: 1. Chemo port seatbelt pillow to help with the discomfort of the seatbelt against the surgical area. 2. A boo boo bag which is made from organic flaxseed to heat up or chill for tender areas. 3.Queasy Drops to help with nausea and dry mouth. 4. & 5. A fidget spinner and deck of cards to help the child to focus and have fun with toys that have been proven to entertain and occupy the child’s mind. 6. The last item is a sketchbook with colored pencils. It can be used for drawing or journaling which has been proven as an excellent outlet for one’s feelings during tough times.
CHEMO PORT SEAT BELT PILLOWS:
Size: 5" x 10"
*The pillow provides a comfortable cushion between the seat belt and tender areas without adding pressure to the surgery area.
* With the chemo port seat belt pillow, the two strap attachments secure the pillow in two places so that it doesn’t move.
*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.
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
Why Journal? The act of writing (or drawing) 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. *Coloring book styles may vary.
BOO BOO BAGS
*Boo Boo Bags are approximately 4 1/2” x 4 1/2” and weigh approximately 5 ounces.
*Helps Relieve pain and inflammation.
*Can be heated in microwave and used as hand warmers
*Fabric is pre-washed in hyper-allergenic detergent, removing chemical used during manufacturing and/or shipping.
*Covers can be removed and washed. DO NOT WASH BAG
*I use only organic flaxseed so that toxic chemicals are not released when heated in the microwave.
Flaxseed does not form hard clumps during the freezing process. Other commonly used fillers have a high water volume which causes clumping.
POP FIDGETS AND CARD GAMES: Fun activities are a great way to distract the mind while going through cancer treatments. These were chosen because they can be played individually or with others. *Pop Fidgets may be a different style than the one shown.
