Cancer Care Parcel Review: November 2017
Cancer impacts many people during their life time, whether that be themselves, friends or loved ones. Diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2013, Dr Shara Cohen used her own personal experience and understanding to create the Cancer Care Parcel brand to bring some much-needed calm and care in the lives of people suffering from cancer.
Dr Shara Cohen found a few friends felt awkward and avoided her, as they did not know what to say. What better way to show someone you are thinking of them, provide some much-needed comfort and support by gifting a Cancer Care Parcel with useful and practical gifts that will ease the stress of both a turbulent and uncertain time where cancer patients often have little time to digest the gravity of what is happening and with many appointments to attend have no time to simply just relax.
The team at Cancer Care Parcel all have experience with cancer, as a patient, survivor, friend or family member. Gift contents are not randomly chosen, a combination of Dr Shara’s personal experience and knowledge along with feedback from parcel receivers and their advisory board which consists of cancer patients and survivors make the parcels contents practical, relevant and relaxing.
The box I reviewed was the Cancer Comfort Gift Hamper: For adults at any stage of cancer. Make a cup of chocolate and ginger tea, light the soya bean candle, wrap up in the Teddy snug, plug in the ear phones and listen to the rainforest nature sounds relaxing CD for some much-needed calm and tranquillity. Soothe tired eyes and feet with the Eye gel mask, Lavender & geranium relaxing linseed eye pillows and the ribbed foot roller. Finally, focus your mind and enjoy a colouring book and pencils and some super fun catchable bubbles. Staying hydrated throughout with the easy fill water bottle.
Giving back is a major focus for Dr Shara, using profit to support the community by donating to cancer charities and helps with their awareness campaigns. Cancer Care parcel have a dedicated source of articles that provide insight and advice to benefit the Cancer community. Also, a Cancer resources list. It was an honour to review the Cancer Care Parcel, such a worthwhile review to be involved in, and I hope many find them a great resource of help, information and advice.
