Most people automatically think to send flowers to those in hospital or recovering at home. But I think the Cancer Care Parcel boxes are far more useful, thoughtful, and practical. Besides which, some hospitals won’t allow flowers due to allergies and fungal spores that place patients (especially blood and marrow transplant patients) at risk for infection.
With someone in the UK being diagnosed with cancer every two minutes, it’s more important than ever to have somewhere to turn for informed and practical help. I know my mother would have loved one of these boxes if they’d been available at the time. And sadly, the friend I was going to give this box to after my review has very recently died. So I’m going to give this box to my Cancer Nurse Specialist relative to pass on to one of her patients. Because it’s such a well-thought out selection of gifts, and I’d like to think they’ll bring comfort to someone who really needs it.
