The Big C. I've posted about it before and upon a call the other day from my mother that her husband was going back to the hospital because of skin cancer, I started worrying again. My mother still has ill effects from her full hysterectomy after discovering a plethora of cancerous nodes in her uterus. This worries me because I really don't know what I would do without my mother or her husband. My father passed away when I was six and I don't know what my mother would do if her husband passed away before her. He's older by 10 years, I think, and is constantly getting biopsies. My boss replies to me, every once in a while, that people eventually pass. However, although it's reality, I don't want to think about it right now for my mother and her husband. 

Giving Comfort is an amazing program where you can donate a cancer care package to someone in need or purchase one for gifting to a friend or family member. Since my family members are not local, I chose the Woman's Harmony Kit to take to the cancer ward at the hospital across the street from my home. This is a precious care kit consisting of the following.

Cream velour robe, Black Quilted Tote Bag, Head Wrap Scarf, Hope Journal, Aromatherapy Eye Pillow, Queasy Pops, Hand Sanitizer, Burt's Bees Beauty Kit, Light Green Stress Reliever Ball, Relaxation CD, Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips (book), Water Bottle Infuser, 3 Tea Sampler. Kit packed in Black Quilted Tote Bag





By the time the Giving Comfort cancer care kit arrived at my doorstep, I heard about a local mama of 3 that was going through cancer treatments. Her husband actually writes a blog about her journey with stomach cancer and I was touched and wanted to reach out to her to see if I could send her the kit. I was so happy when she said yes and I had it delivered to her. 

Did you know that more than 1.6 million people in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer this year? It seems lately that so many people are affected by the various cancer forms that an awareness by the Giving Comfort program is just perfect. To be able to send a little package to bring sunshine during treatments for cancer patients of all ages is a fantastic cause.  





It is heartwarming to see the delight when receiving a cancer care kit from Giving Comfort. These kits are not just products that bring a bit of relief to the enduring day. They are also reminders that someone is providing support and rooting for recovery. 


There are comfort kits available for young children to teens to adults.

  2. Cancer touches so many people's lives. You often want to "do" something but aren't sure what, especially when you don't live nearby. These Cancer Care Kits are a great way to send something that you know will be useful. Thanks for a great post and how excellent you were able to give the kit to a local mom battling cancer.

  3. Cancer has touch so many of my family members it is scary to think how likely it would be for me to get cancer. If you do have to deal with cancer it is nice to know that so many great organizations are out there to help.
