It is never easy to know what to buy a man at the best of times, but a man with cancer does need special consideration.
First of all its hard to understand what they are going through, what their worries are and what they need both emotionally and practically. This is true of anyone with cancer regardless of their sex.
The most important thing you can give someone with cancer is always your time and a listening ear. But sometimes that is not possible or you want to do more. So we have listed 5 items that men with any cancer diagnosis will find useful…
1.USB Power Bank
With doctor visits, hospital appointments, convalescing and/or treatment, a cancer diagnosis means that it is not always easy to stay on top of things. Having a power bank handy means that the mobile phone or tablet can always be accessible so that they are never out of reach or out of touch.
Staying hydrated is always important and cancer treatment and hospitals can be very dehydrating, so a handy portable water bottle is essential.
3. Skin Moisturiser
A general moisturiser or a moisturiser for men is very useful, as the dehydration which can occur from treatments can make the skin fell rough and uncomfortable. Also a little bit of pampering is nice.
4. Something to Carry Snacks
A little bag for food or medicine is useful to keep by the bed and when travelling. The recommendation to relieve nausea of many cancer treatments is to have small snacks often. A little food back will help with this.
5. Spare Headphones
Spare headphones, simply to relieve the boredom of appointments and to be taken away from the everyday stress of cancer. A spare set means that peaceful music to relieve the stress is always available
