Give a kit, give a smile
Your donation will make an immediate impact in the life of a cancer patient.
Backpack or Tote Bag
We distribute our Comfort Kits in backpacks and tote bags that are durable, high-quality, and sensibly stylish.
An amusing activity for young cancer patients, this coloring book has a hopeful and heartwarming theme of kindness and comfort.
Stuffed Bear or Monkey
Plush, pleasing and squeezable, our ‘stuffies’ become truly special friends for kids whose options for play and companionship are sometimes painfully limited.
Fleece Lap Blanket
We chose the softest, medium-weight fleece we could find. Chemo drugs and weight loss can make anyone feel cold. Snuggling up at home on the couch or at the hospital feels comforting.
A deck of playing cards is always useful as a diversion, a brain stimulator, and a fun activity with visitors.
Dry mouth can become a relentlessly irritating problem during treatment. These candies are tasty and tangy -- to help moisten the mouth and put a smile on your face.
Custom Design Pillowcase
Little ones can lay their head on a soft and loveable animal print pillowcase. It’s a huge step up from the standard-issue linen at hospitals or other facilities.
Especially useful and comforting to cancer patients, contains a toothbrush, toothpaste, moisturizer, lip balm, and hand sanitizer.
Socks With Grippers
Feet get cold during chemo and in the hospital, so we designed extra soft and fluffy socks to wear anywhere. We added rubber grips to the bottom so that nobody slips.
Heads with no hair get cold. While it doesn’t happen to everyone, many people with cancer experience hair thinning or hair loss. These hats were chosen for their soft fabric and stylish look.
Free Magazine Subscription
This 12-month free subscription voucher allows you to choose from over 200 titles. Reading can really help you through long chemo treatments or recovery periods.
Journal and Pen
A journal can become indispensible when navigating cancer treatment. It’s a great place to jot down a thought, or a question for the doctor. Writing can be extremely therapeutic.
Cancer treatment is not just one single process or activity – it’s an ongoing series of appointments, tests, meetings, consultations, deadlines and due dates. This simple, low-tech, pocket sized planner is a crucial tool.
Sudoku Puzzle Book
Puzzles keep the brain engaged and also help fight boredom. These puzzles get more challenging as you work through the book.
Herbal, soothing, and fragrant, our tea will provide physical and emotional warmth. Sometimes all it takes is a quiet moment and a warm cup of tea to lift your spirits.
