Read some more about the "THINGS WE ROCK" in our adult chemotherapy gift baskets:

Body

Lindi Skin – Going through chemo or radiation treatment can be particularly hard on one’s skin, causing sensitivity, irritation, and pain. Lindi Skin creates clinically-proven products designed to address these skin problems, using proven formulas to soothe and repair. In addition, their product is unscented, which is ideal for chemotherapy patients who tend to be hypersensitive to aromas.

Dionis Goat Milk Skincare – When going through treatment, a cancer patient’s skin can become increasingly dry. That’s why Dionis Goat Milk Skincare is so useful, providing the vitamins and nutrients needed to keep skin moist and healthy.

Dionis Goats Milk Lip Care – Keeping your lips moist and healthy can also be a struggle for cancer patients, which is why this product is so useful. It’s made with nourishing honey and goat milk, both of which are very good for soothing and moisturizing your skin.

Biotene – Having a dry and irritated mouth is a common side effect of treatment, which is why we love this fantastic oral rinse.

Queasy Pops - Anyone who has undergone treatment for cancer understands the persistent nausea that comes with it. Queasy Pops are great for fighting this off and are made with all-natural ingredients. Being entirely drug-free and developed by healthcare professionals, you can rest assured that these won’t cause any adverse side effects.

Cozy Warm Socks – Cancer treatment rooms are often kept at a cool temperature, meaning a cancer patient needs to take extra steps to make sure they can remain comfortable and warm while undergoing treatment. These socks are amazingly warm and comfortable.

Knit Chemo Cap – Embroidered with  #ROCKtheTREATMENT, these hats are great for helping cancer patients stay warm. We have them designed by Spectrum Designs, which employs adults who are on the spectrum, allowing them to be productive and contribute to great causes like our own.

WELL-BEING

Stepping Stone Interactive Journal – This electronic journal is made specifically for cancer patients, providing them with places to fill in their medical history and appointments, treatments, symptoms, questions to ask physicians, reminders, etc. Keeping a written record of one’s battle with cancer is a great way to stay grounded in the process of getting better.

Spa Comfort Pillows – Going through treatment can create all sorts of bodily discomfort, which these pillows are designed to help with. They can either be warmed up in the microwave or chilled in the freezer to provide localized relief to pain points.

Adult Coloring Book - Staying focused and mentally engaged is important for everyone during treatment, both children and adults. Coloring has been proven to help people deal with anxiety and cultivate mindfulness. The fun, intricate designs in this book make it a perfect gift for someone who needs to stay mentally active while going through treatment.

Note Cards – Writing down notes, thoughts, and letters can be a great way to stay focused and engaged while undergoing treatment. These notecards are included in some of our baskets to allow cancer patients to have some readily available paper to write on.

Puzzles - While it’s important to stay focused and mentally engaged during treatment, it can also be very difficult to focus when undergoing treatment. That’s why we love these puzzles – they promote mindless concentration that doesn’t require too much while also providing plenty of great benefits.

SNACKS

Dark Chocolate Covered Berries – Who doesn’t love some chocolate-covered fruit, especially when they’re chock full of antioxidants that can help your body stay strong and fresh?

Green/Peppermint Tea – A warm cup of tea can be very relaxing for anyone, including cancer patients. Also, the antioxidants in green tea and peppermint are a great way to soothe nausea and promote a healthy immune system.

Peppermint Candy – Having something sweet to suck on can be a great distraction, particularly when it also helps with alleviating nausea, headaches, and dry mouth like peppermint does.

Fruit & Nut Mix – Treatment can be hard on your appetite. Having some easy, nutrient-rich snacks laying around is a great way to stay nourished and healthy.

Sandwich Crackers – When taking medication, it’s important not to do so on an empty stomach. That can be difficult, though, when dealing with constant nausea. These crackers are a great way to get some food in your stomach to allow you to safely take your medication and keep your body fed.

Jelly Belly Cocktail Collection – Not everything you give a cancer patient has to be focused on their health – sometimes it’s just nice to have something yummy to snack on! That’s why we include Jelly Bellys in many of our baskets. The cocktail collection is one of our favorites, with flavors ranging from mojito to strawberry daiquiri.
