When You Can’t See Someone in Person Send Our Cancer Gift Basket To Someone, You Love This Holiday
No one likes to be reminded that the holidays this year might be different. For people with cancer, Covid-19 has presented new challenges to what can already be a stressful time. If you have a loved one or friend with cancer, your visits this year might be limited. Thanks to Rock the Treatment, you can still send a gift that is thoughtful and helpful.
At Rock the Treatment, we offer a selection of cancer gift boxes with items carefully selected with the cancer patient in mind. Our boxes contain items designed to ease the physical and side effects of radiation or chemotherapy, items that can bring joy to anyone’s holiday.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Offers Suggestions to Have Healthy and Happy Holidays
Covid-19 has resulted in new rules, warnings, and precautions that are unprecedented in modern history. As of November 27, 2020, there have been more than 1 million cases of Covid-19 reported in the US. The CDC has suggested that the safest way to celebrate the holidays this year is to do so on a smaller scale, only with the people in your immediate household.
This might be especially true for anyone in the high-risk category of complications from Covid-19.
People with cancer and people getting chemotherapy or radiation could be in this category as they often have compromised immune systems. Before deciding what to do about your holidays, check the CDC website and/or speak to your doctor.
The CDC offers these suggestions everyone can consider before deciding whether to get together with anyone to celebrate the holidays:
- The levels of Covid-19 in the community
- Any exposure created by traveling to the gathering
- Whether the gathering is inside, outside, or ventilated
- How long the gathering will last
- The number of people at the gathering
- How far apart the people are
- The behavior of the people at the gathering prior to attending
- The behavior of the people during attendance
- The presence of food and manner of foodservice and consumption
- Mask-wearing protocol
- Availability of handwashing stations and sanitizer
Digital Visits and Online Shopping Can Make Your Holiday Safer
Despite what might be restricted holiday celebrations this year, there are still ways you can make this season enjoyable and meaningful. Zoom, Microsoft teams, google hang, and countless other opportunities to “see” people abound. Take advantage of these safer ways you can spend valuable time with loved ones.
