D.I.Y. Care Package For Chemo Patients

Recently, a very dear friend of mine was diagnosed with cancer. When the time came for her to begin her chemo therapy, I wanted to do something for her, but was at a complete loss. What do you get someone going through chemo? Flowers carry spores. They have very specific diets. They're not usually up for a visit. So what can you do? 

Here is what I came up with, after doing a little research into what a chemo patient may need. I picked out a pretty gift bag, and filled it with a journal and pen, a lip balm, some breath mints, hand sanitizer, hand lotion, travel Kleenex, and a chocolate treat. I included an encouraging card.

 These were all things she was able to use. She continues to fight, but I'm happy to report she is doing quite well. I hope this post helps someone, looking for an idea. Here's to winning the fight against cancer!
