The Sweetest Rest & Recovery Box Essentials includes the following items:
Coloring Book & Colored 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 one’s focus to geometric colors and patterns, like those found in this charming pocket-sized coloring book.
Lavendar 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) for a relaxing lavender scented nap.
Lavendar Essential Oil & Diffuser Bracelet
Did you know that AROMATHERAPY rates in the TOP 5 most requested items from Cancer Patients? 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.
2 Pair Cozy Socks
From icy cold hospitals to chemo-induced neuropathy, soft and warm socks are must-have during cancer treatments. Stretchy, fuzzy, and gentle on tender toes, 3-pairs of fuzzy socks is a surprisingly great item to add to any cancer patient's tool kit.
The Cancer Card
"Yay, it’s time for my radiation/ chemo/ biopsy/ other hideous cancer treatment today” – said no cancer patient ever. Living with cancer stinks – but there IS one teeny tiny silver lining: The Cancer Card. Patients simply show their card to the closest friend or family member and VOILA – they get to skip annoying tasks and activities!
The Sweetest Rest & Recovery Box Comprehensive Size includes all of the above PLUS the following items:
Clinical fatigue is a common side effect, often lingering long after the 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.
*Blanket colors vary
