Comforting kits for during breast cancer treatment
COMFORT Kits are designed to be used during the time breast cancer patients are receiving chemotherapy or radiation treatment.
The kits are the brain-child of former nurse, Julie Lamont.
She has carefully developed a small range of kits to suit women and men who have gone through breast cancer surgery.
They contain chemotherapy-friendly personal care products, Australian-made where possible, which come in a beautifully presented kit.
"They are used to ease and soothe the more common side effects of chemotherapy or radiation,” Julie said.
In the kits are-
- Mouthwash - soothing, gentle, moisturising and alcohol-free, and a toothbrush - soft is recommended.
- Jelly beans - for that awful metallic taste you can get in your mouth, and peppermints - for nausea..
- Lip balm - for dry, cracked or sore lips.
- Straws - To help when the mouth is sore.
- Nausea band - the natural way to ease a queasy stomach.
- Sick bags - so you won't be caught out, handy for the glove box or handbag.
- Face masks - to prevent catching the flu.
- Hand sanitiser - to kill germs that may cause illness, when hand washing isn't an option.
- Heat pack - for all those aches and pains.
- Shampoo - non-drying, non-soap, and a hair net.
- Non-slip socks - for those cold slippery hospital floors.
- Moisturising cream - for red, swollen, painful and even cracked skin.
- Digital thermometer.
- A 100% silk scarf.
- A toiletries bag.
