Celebrate September Cancer Awareness With a Cancer Gift Box From Rock the Treatment
September means summer vacation is over. School is beginning, teachers are going back to work, and cooler weather is coming. This year, things may look a bit different. The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we work, learn, and socialize.
Covid-19 has also affected our conversations about health. It has taken over as the main subject of research and discussion. Other diseases have been forced to “take a backseat” for the time being.
For people getting cancer treatments, the pandemic has brought additional challenges to their lives. Cancer patients have virtual appointments with their doctors. Most can no longer bring a chemo buddy with them to treatment. People in the hospital might not be allowed to have visitors.
Imagine how hard it must be to undergo chemo and radiation treatments alone. Imagine worrying that cancer is not the most important thing on your doctor’s mind.
It is more important than ever to remember that cancer is still out there and is still affecting millions of lives each day. For these cancer patients, nothing is more important than raising awareness, continuing research, and finding cures for this disease.
September Cancer Awareness Month: Something for Everyone
Organizations across the country remind everyone about how important cancer is by selecting specific diseases to “celebrate” each month. September focuses on five different types of cancer.
- National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month
- Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
- Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month
- Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month
- Blood Cancer Awareness Month
The cancers highlighted in September include those that attack men, women, and children. We are reminded that no one is spared from the effects of this horrible disease.
Do Something Special For the Cancer Patient in Your Life: Send Our Cancer Gift Box
During September, various organizations will schedule activities intended to raise awareness, educate, and fundraise. Some of these activities will be on a national scale, while others will be local. There are opportunities for everyone to get involved in some way to combat cancer or help someone undergoing treatment.
One of the best ways to “celebrate” cancer awareness is to do something personal for someone you know who has cancer. You can donate money to a cancer charity in their name, participate in a walk to honor a survivor, or remember someone you lost.
You can also offer to help with errands, cleaning, making meals, or childcare.
Research shows that people undergoing cancer treatment are uplifted by gifts that let them know someone is thinking of them. At Rock the Treatment, we create gift boxes filled with items that let the cancer patient in your life know that you care about their physical and emotional well-being.
We have cancer gift boxes for men, women, and children who are getting chemotherapy or radiation. Our boxes include healthy, practical items proven to ease the side effects of cancer treatments and brighten someone’s day.
