Chemo Care Pack

we have a close family member who is about to start chemo and I did a bit of research online and decided to put together my own version of a chemo gift pack...

so after getting a few ideas off pinterest and a few other chemo gift pack sights I set off with a list

first I found things like jumbo playing cards (he is getting older :P )



a notepad



knuckle bones



he's not very computer literate and doesn't go anywhere near facebook and I found this cute little note pad so he can 'update' his status :P



sudoku puzzle book



harmonica... not just good for his lungs but also at annoying people :P



bendy pen



so this is them altogether



and now wrapped with snakes and ladder paper I will just point out :P



and this is the little tag I added to the front



next I was looking for things to keep him hydrated like funny bendy straws (bendy straws make everything more fun) 



a drink bottle



mouth gel to help with dry mouth



mint lip balm



these are genius they turn cans into bottles... they snap to the top of a can and then you can just sip like a bottle... they are also good for picnics and stops bugs and bees from flying in the can



all the hydration stuff together :)



then all wrapped



and the little tag I made for them



I thought it was important to add a little hand washing reminder



all wrapped



and the little tag



my next thought was mints



ginger lollies for nausea



different flavoured hard lollies




all wrapped up



again the little tag



these are part of a long running joke and he laughed when he opened it



some of his favourite biscuits



and his favourite chocolate




all wrapped up 


the little tag




I saw this in a shop :D and thought it would be funny



all wrapped up



hehe the tag




chemo can make you cold so I looked for warm stuff like this heat pack


a neck pillow



a beanie



and warm socks



altogether



all wrapped up



the tag



I think he really appreciated the thought :) and I thought it was nice for them to be a little prepared for the tough times ahead

anyone else put together something like this for a loved one? what did you include?
