“If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.” - Jack Kornfield

  • This all-in-one box is ideal for patients planning for both Radiation and/or Chemotherapy treatments.
  • Features a variety of targeted tools to help you manage common treatment side effects like nausea, radiation-burns or tender ports, and fatigue.

    Cancer Care Box Includes:

    Botanical Burn Balm

    Our friends at Polish Your Parts developed this calendula infused balm with a high concentration of soothing calendula root. Properties in the calendula root are known to alleviate the sting in burns. The balm is easy to apply and is ideal for sensitive skin tender from chemo ports and radiation treatments.

    Essential Oils & Diffuser

    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. 

    No Sweat Ice Pack

    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.

    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.

    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.

     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.


    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.

    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!
