The Ultimate Chemo Hamper
The perfect gift for someone undergoing chemotherapy
To help people live better with cancer, we donate $1000 to the American Cancer Society every month.
While everyone experiences cancer and its treatment differently, most people undergoing chemotherapy will have very similar side effects - including nausea, pain, a change in skin texture, stress and trouble sleeping.
Our Chemo Care Hamper contains products specially selected to help make chemotherapy sessions more bearable and to help relieve everyday symptoms, as well as to bring a little joy.
This incredible hamper includes:
Fleecy Microwavable Lavender Wheat Wrap (Choose from five colours): This soft and cosy wrap can be heated in the microwave; the filling of natural wheat provides therapeutic relief for aches and pains and the lavender scent will help you relax and unwind.
Queasy Drops: Several cancer treatments can cause nausea, bad taste, dry mouth and queasiness. Developed by healthcare professionals, Queasy Drops are a handy, sugar-free way to stop nausea and soothe the stomach. They are formulated using the essential oils which act via aromatherapy and taste receptors to inhibit negative taste sensations and calm the tummy. Queasy Drops can also alleviate dry mouth, provide quick calories and are soothing and comforting.
The Little Book of Mindfulness: Mindfulness can help many people living with cancer and is especially helpful in dealing with insomnia, pain, stress and anxiety. The Little Book of Mindfulness is a beautifully illustrated book which helps to teach you 40 easy ways to be mindful every day.
Defiant Beauty Itchy Skin Oil: Cancer treatment can often cause your skin to feel incredibly itchy, especially when undergoing chemotherapy. The Defiant Beauty range was created by Jennifer Young - a cancer survivor, specifically for cancer patients. This Itchy Skin Oil by Defiant Beauty is a fragrance-free oil used to relieve itchiness. It is made from entirely natural and organic ingredients and contains a blend of herbal oils known for their soothing properties.
Gel'O Cool Pillow Mat: Made with medical grade gel, this pillow mat can chill your pillow after cooling down in the refrigerator to help you have a goods night sleep even when suffering night sweats. It can also be heated up to provide more warmth when needed.
Gel Eye Mask: Perfect for soothing headaches, stress and helping you sleep when you are having hot spells. Put this gel eye mask in the fridge a couple of hours before you want to use it.
Gin Gins Ginger Chews: Ginger is known to be a natural way of stopping nausea. Gin Gins Ginger chews are stimulating, delicious and satisfyingly spicy which helps to fend off nausea. Perfect for taking on-the-go. It is a gluten-free product.
Badger Balm Muscle Rub - 21g: Both cancer treatment and the tumour itself can cause soreness and muscle pain. This balm, made of cayenne pepper and ginger, is ideal to gently soothe and relax tense, sore muscles. It gently warms up and stimulates circulation to help loosen muscles and joints.

Fast delivery and fantastic products
I stumbled across this site while looking for gifts for people with cancer. I found this hamper and thought it had a great selection of useful and practical products. I received the parcel very quickly with great communication via email throughout. My mum has used everything and we've re-ordered more of most of the items in this set.
The products in the hamper allowed me to see that relief for my symptoms could be found and source these products. Looking on the website extended the knowledge of what is out there for support.
Nice gift, don't get the wrap
I bought this for a friend that is going through chemotherapy. The items itself are good however I paid $4.15 for the "luxury gift wrap" but I'm glad I got it sent to my house first as the gift wrap was cheap blue tissue paper with a cheap Christmas bow on top. I would have been so embarrassed had that gone directly to my friend that way! Skip the wrap if you purchase from here and wrap it yourself. Also the eye mask seems of cheap quality. Everything else was as presented and looks to be good quality.
I bought this hamper for a friend, the first one came within a few days but the second parcel of this order didn't come till after a week later which I wasn't aware of and bit disappointed as my friend has started their chemo the week of the first parcel arriving. Overall it is a fab pressie and has everything he needs to help him through his chemo
