We interviewed over 500 Cancer Patients and Gift Buyers to curate our Self Care and Gift Boxes. Shop with confidence knowing this Cancer Care box was curated based on direct feedback from the cancer community.

  • With a bit of everything, these all-in-one boxes are ideal for patients at any stage in their cancer journey, from surgery to chemo, radiation, or recovery.
  • Each features a variety of targeted tools to help manage common treatment side effects like nausea, tender skin and lips, and fatigue.

    Cancer Care Box Essentials Includes:

    Ginger Mints

    From taste-receptor issues to nausea, ginger mints are a must for anyone undergoing chemotherapy treatment. These have juuuust the right amount of ginger flavor, without being too spicy or too sweet.

    Orange Mimosa Lip Balm

    Dry, cracked, and painful lips are a common side effect of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. These orange-mimosa lip balms from Honeybee Gardens feature the flavors of fresh-squeezed orange juice and delicate champagne. Formulated with organic and natural ingredients, these lip balms are long-lasting and provide comforting moisture to sensitive lips.

    Bergamot Essential Oil & Diffuser Bracelet

    Did you know that AROMATHERAPY rates in the TOP 5 most requested items from Cancer Patients? With both calming and uplifting abilities, Bergamot essential oil is mildly citrusy, pleasant without being overly pungent. It is commonly used to help reduce stress and tension and help with mental clarity. Just dab one or two drops onto the black lava stones on the diffuser bracelet to enjoy the benefits of this unique essential oil.  *Bracelet decorative stone colors may vary. 

     

    Weighted Eye Pillow 

    Fatigue and exhaustion are very common cancer treatment side effects. Resting is often strongly encouraged. These lavender scented eye pillows can be heated (30 seconds in the microwave) or cooled (overnight in the freezer) – just lie down, cover your eyes, breathe in the lavender scent and pretend you’re taking a nap for fun vs. necessity!

     

    The Cancer Card

    "Yay, it’s time for my radiation/ chemo/ biopsy/ other hideous cancer treatment today” – said no cancer patient ever. We all know living with cancer stinks – but there IS one teeny tiny silver lining: The Cancer Card. Just show your card to the closest friend or family member and VOILA – skip annoying tasks and activities! Fight on, stay strong, and pull The Cancer Card every so often – you deserve it!


    The Cancer Care Box Comprehensive includes all of the items in the Essentials box, PLUS:

     

    Seatbelt Shield

    Seat belts can be an unexpected challenge for cancer patients. Unfortunately seatbelts tend to rub directly against the most tender part of a patient's torso while undergoing and recovering from surgery wounds, radiation burns, and raw chemo ports. Simply insert the pillow between you and your seat belt and TA DA - pain free driving!

    *Seat belt fabric cover designs vary.

    Two Pairs of Cozy Socks

    Whether it's freezing cold hospitals or chemo-induced neuropathy, fuzzy socks are a must.  Keep feet warm and dry with super cozy, warm and soft socks. Stretchy, fuzzy, and gentle on tender toes, these luxurious socks are beloved by patients in throughout their treatments. *Sock colors vary

    Botanical Body Cream

    Did you know that LOTION is the #1 requested item from Cancer Patients? We adore this hand cream from our friends at Polish Your Parts. Knowing some cancer treatments can make even light scents unbearable, this scent-free lotion offers quick absorption and a smooth velvety finish.

    No Sweat Ice Pack

    Ice Packs rate in the TOP 5 most requested items from cancer patients. It's no wonder - Breast Cancer patients should never leave home without ice packs in tow. While the packaging says, “for lunches,” at Balm Box we believe these are the ideal size for tender chemo-ports and radiation-sized burns. (And hey – hang onto them for future post-radiation lunch boxes!) The sweat-free ice packs do not leave damp marks on clothes. Plus, they are large enough to provide relief, yet small enough to stay ‘hidden’ under an arm or tucked into the front of a shirt.

    The Cancer Care Box Tremendous includes all of the items in the Comprehensive box, PLUS:

     

    Coloring Books & Pencils

    Cancer treatment can be extremely stressful, ergo the importance of self-care throughout the duration. It can be very calming to unplug from technology and redirect your focus to geometric colors and patterns, like those found in this charming pocket-sized coloring book.

    Stainless Steel Tumbler  

    How many times do you have to hear your medical team remind you to stay hydrated? This stainless steel, vacuum insulated tumbler with leak-proof lid and eco-friendly straw attachment will keep your drinks icy cold or piping hot for hours. *Tumbler colors vary

    Lavender Essential Oil & Diffuser Bracelet

    Lavender oil is commonly used as a holistic treatment for anxiety, insomnia, and restlessness. Just one or two drops on the lava-stone bracelet post-treatment provide a lovely smell that can last for hours. The aroma-therapy is meant to help patients feel calm and relaxed.

    *Bracelet decorative stone colors may vary.

    Tea Time

    One of the most common cancer treatment side effects is fatigue. It is critical to employ self-care when feeling worn down. This charming little teapot, cookies, and flavored Tea Drops branded teas provide a perfect little midday respite. *Cookie & tea flavors vary
