Men's Cancer Care Box Essentials Includes:
No Sweat Ice Pack
While the packaging says, “for lunches,” at Balm Box we believe these are the ideal size for tender surgical wounds, chemo-ports and radiation-sized burns. (And hey – hang onto them for future post-cancer 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. *Ice pack designs may vary.
Botanical Body Cream
Dry, cracked, and tender skin can be common surgery and treatment side effects. We adore this unscented lotion from our friends at Polish Your Parts. This particular formula was inspired by medical field professionals who constantly wash their hands, need quick relief and are not able to wear fragrance. Knowing cancer treatments can make even light scents unbearable, this scent-free lotion offers quick absorption and a smooth velvety finish.
From taste-receptor issues to nausea, ginger mints are a must for cancer patients. These have just the right amount of ginger flavor, without being too spicy or too sweet.
Unscented Lip Balm
Dry, cracked, and painful lips are a common side effect of chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
Knowing cancer treatments can make even light scents unbearable, these unscented lip balms from Polish Your Parts are a great option for cancer patients. Formulated with organic and natural ingredients, Lip Lovin’ lip balms provide comforting moisture to dry and sensitive lips.
Men's Cancer Care Box Tremendous Includes all items in Essentials PLUS:
Whether it’s surgery, chemo, radiation, or recovery – all can be utterly exhausting and overwhelming for cancer patients. Clinical fatigue is listed as a very common side effect for all, often lingering long after patients complete their final treatment. Cancer patients are often encouraged to take breaks throughout the day and be sure to rest. And what better way to rest than by curling up with this cozy throw blanket? Super soft and squishy, plus washer-safe should it encounter any spills or stains. *Plush blanket colors may vary.
Seat Belt Shield
Seat belts can be an unexpected challenge for cancer patients. Unfortunately, seat belts tend to rub directly against the most tender part of a patient's torso due to surgical wounds, radiation burns, and chemo ports. Simply insert the pillow between you and your seat belt. The scalloped shape will hold in place using the seat belt tension - no need for cumbersome snaps or Velcro. The slipcover is removeable and machine washable for easy upkeep. *Slipcover fabric colors may vary.
Stainless Steel Tumbler
Most cancer patients will hear their care teams remind them to stay hydrated about 1-billion times. (We miiiight be exaggerating here…) Our stainless steel, vacuum insulated tumbler with leak-proof lid and eco-friendly straw attachment will keep drinks icy cold or piping hot for hours. The skinny format fits in almost any cup holder and is easy to grip, even for those suffering from neuropathy in their hands.
One of the most common cancer treatment side effects is fatigue. It is critical to employ self-care when feeling worn down. Enjoy a little treat courtesty of these yummy cookies.
