A Gift Idea for Cancer Patients
You may know that I last year I underwent treatment for Breast Cancer.
I was so overwhelmed at the number of beautiful and thoughtful gifts that my friends sent to me. A couple of those were care packages. My friends had clearly taken the time to think about what goodies I would love. As well as that, they were useful gifts too and often kept me occupied and my mind off treatment.
The Empathy Gift Co
I recently discovered The Empathy Gift Co, founded by Melbourne mum, Samantha Lehmann. She set up the Empathy Gift Co after going through some painful personal experiences. After her brother, and more recently her father, passed away, Samantha also experienced an anxiety disorder, GAD.
Grief hit her hard but made her think about what gave her comfort during those painful times. Flowers were sent in abundance and, whilst lovely, they didn’t quite help.
She established her business to provide a range of helpful, comforting and helpful gifts focused on healing and wellness.
The Breast Cancer Care Package
I want to share with you one of the packages from her range, which Samantha very kindly sent to me. It is a variation of the Breast Cancer Care Package.
Inside the box, the contents were carefully wrapped in tissue paper:
My box contains a gorgeous Green Tea Hand and Body Lotion, a Cacao Bath Ball, A Nail Polish (the colour is SO me), a beautiful Soap and “The Language of Healing” book.
I love how each item would be so soothing to someone undergoing chemo or radiation. Chemo wrecked havoc on my skin and my hands were so dry from having to wash them constantly.
I just love this care package and think it’s a wonderful gift idea for cancer patients.
The pre-made and customisable range of gifts that The Empathy Gift Co offers is vast. In fact, is has a gift for everyone from birthdays to breakups, new babies to those who just need cheering up!
