Today I am teaming up with The Lovin Sisters to talk about Breast Cancer Awareness and Support. I answered some questions in stories about what women need to know in terms of staying on top of their breast health and how they can support someone through treatment.
One of the top questions I was asked by their followers was about gift ideas for women currently in breast cancer treatment or chemotherapy. Of course, my go to gifts are right here in my shop – like my Guided Cancer Binder, Keep Going Socks, Cancer World Map Tote, Affirmation Decals and Stickers!
But cancer treatment can take a long time and there are other necessary items what are helpful to get through treatment comfortably. The Lovin Sisters are Amazon experts so I have narrowed down some of my very favorite Amazon finds for Breast Cancer Support.
One thing I LOVED was this blue tooth eye mask. I listened to thousands of pages of books throughout treatment while also hiding out in my room and this was perfect for that.
This hydrating oil body wash is a must have for dry, tender skin that is affected by chemo infusions and radiation.
If you need to have surgery – either a lumpectomy or mastectomy – you will want this Seat Belt Pillow for riding in the car. Everything will be sore and tender for weeks. This helps immensely.
We are a puzzle family and this is a fun one to do together during long recovery days at home. Plus, I love the little feminist theme.
After surgery I could no lift my arms above my head for 6 weeks! I lived in button up tops and let’s be honest, they were mostly pajamas. These ones are SO cute!
Chemo infusions can be long and boring. My husband brought a funny adult swear word coloring book but I thought this Twentieth Century Foxes one would be perfect for me. Ha!
During treatment, I developed crazy hot flashes, thanks to chemo. My sister got me a portable fan to take with me everywhere. I literally wore it around my neck daily. Totally necessary.
Nothing says comfort like a cozy blanket! I think this one is so cute and on trend. But watch out, if you have a daughter she might steal it from you. I know this from experience.
I hope you find that one of these ideas is helpful for you or a friend during breast cancer treatment and recovery. I would love to hear any other must-have items you think I should add to my ever growing list!
