The Under $75 Comfort Kit for Cancer Patients

The Under $75 Comfort Kit for Cancer Patients

I put together a $75 DIY comfort kit for a friend in treatment and would like to share it here with CCN readers. I included items I thought would provide some comfort during this terrible time including lotion, tissues, lip balm, hard candy and mouth spray for dry mouth, hand sanitizer, cozy non-slip socks, a super soft fleece throw, and big stainless steel travel mug to keep hydrated on trips to treatment.

I was touched with how thankful and grateful she was for this simple gesture. If you know someone going through treatment, these items might be just the thing to provide care & comfort when it’s needed most.

Here’s what I included:

Ginger Chews:

I paid a little under $74.00 for everything and since I am a Prime member, delivery was free. I think these items together make an affordable, thoughtful gift to let someone know you are thinking about them and want to provide comfort in any way possible. I know my gift kit was very well received and did just that for my sweet friend because she told me so. I sincerely hope it offers the same comfort to yours.

  1. My wife will, unfortunately, be spending the next 10 days in a hospital. She goes in on Friday. I wanted to get her something to cheer her up but everything I found would either have something she didn’t like or it was super expensive. I love your ideas. I will order everything tonight. I am a Prime member as well so everything should show up pretty fast.

  2. I have been trying to get some ideas. I want to do something like this for a friend and this really helped me out. The only things I would add to this are ice packs and tea. There is green tea and ginger blend by TAZO that is fantastic for stomach upset.
