How We Started And What We Do Now

After Dr Shara Cohen (our founder) was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013 she found there was very little time to just relax, Our CEO Dr Shara Cohen Is Now A Fellow Of The Royal Society Of Biology take it all in and give herself ‘me’ time.

With all the appointments, liaising with work, telling the people who needed to be told…… there was little time to digest what was happening, research the practicalities or to just relax. There were also a few friends who found the whole situation very awkward, they avoided her as they did not know how to react or what to say. So she set up The Cancer Care Parcel, to enable children and adults with cancer to take some of the worries away and bring some calm back into their lives. Cancer Care Parcel is also an ideal gift, to let people with cancer know that you are thinking of them.

“I set up Cancer Care Parcel to bring back a bit of calm into the lives of people suffering with cancer and its treatment”

Shara has gone through treatment and understands some needs of people with cancer, however, we don’t rely on Shara to decide what goes in the parcels. We also consult those receiving our parcels and our advisory board, which consists of cancer patients and survivors.

The final composition of each box is the decision of the Cancer Care Parcel team, chaired by Shara.
