A few years ago I did a post mentioning Cancer care parcels and I was reviewing their womens hamper but today I want to share with you some information about tier deluxe cancer care parcel for men which has been put together with a lot of thought.
The idea behind it is that if you know someone that is struggling with cancer you can buy them a parcel to lift their spirits and let them know you are thinking of them.
I think this is a great idea and as I had mentioned in my last post about these parcels, speaking from past experience, I really wish I knew about this company when my mum was diagnosed with cancer. I am thankful she got through it with radiotherapy and she now has the all clear but I think if I had given her something like this it really would have made her day and helped her through the tough times.
They do parcels specific for men women or children and you can view the whole range on their website. It is difficult to assemble the right care package for the person who needs it most. This gift is thoughtfully arranged by people who understand what cancer patients want.
This is taken straight from their website to show what is in the deluxe parcel for men:
✓ LAP TRAY: To make hospitals, bed rest and convalescence a bit easier
✓ USB LIGHT: For bedtime reading at home or in hospital
✓ EARPHONES: Spare headphones to help listen to relaxing music and take the mind off treatments and nausea
✓ WOVEN COOL FOOD BAG: Having several small meals a day and carrying nutritious snacks when traveling is often advised when feeling nauseous. This small personal cooler suits this purpose.
✓ MENS MOISTURIZER: To combat dryness
✓ LIP BALM: To soothe and protect
✓ NIVEA FOR MEN: For extra fast absorption by men’s skin
✓ NECK CUSHION: Support for relaxation
✓ HANDWARMER: Reusable click to heat gel pack to relieve cold hands

✓ CHOCOLATE AND GINGER TEA: An update on the standard ginger anti-nausea remedy
✓ COLOUR PAD AND PENCILS: For relaxation
✓ EYE GEL MASK: Help combat cancer-related fatigue
✓ WATER BOTTLE: Keeping hydrated is very important. This water bottle is easy to hold, eco-friendly and BPA free
✓ TWO PACKETS OF TISSUES: Always useful.
✓ EMOLLIENT: Treats and soothes dry skin
✓ HAND SANITISER: To stay germ-free during treatments
✓ DIGITAL THERMOMETER: Useful to check for infections.
✓ ACCESS TO CANCER RESOURCES
✓ LUXURY ECO-FRIENDLY PACKAGING
I really do think a box like this could really help someone. They have so many to pick from with a variety of people in mind, men, women, children, teenagers. They also have a large range with a variety of prices from £49-£149.
As well as putting these together, the company has some really useful resources to help people understand more about cancer and also advice if you have it yourself or if you have a family member or friend and you don’t know how to help. Resources like this can be really helpful. I was very lost when my mum was diagnosed and wish I had known about these resources to help our family through the tough times.
