Chemo Care Hampers, an innovative new company, offers chemotherapy patients hampers of products specially selected to help make chemotherapy sessions more bearable, and to help relieve everyday symptoms, as well as to bring a little joy.
Company founder, Katie Garner, created Chemo Care Hampers after regularly attending her mum’s chemotherapy sessions with her. After seeing how draining chemotherapy can be for patients and treating her mum to little pick me ups to help, she realised that it would be much easier and more convenient if all the essentials for chemotherapy patients could be got in one go, and so, the concept behind Chemo Care Hampers was born.
Chemo Care Hampers delivers a selection of specially selected health and beauty products to patients undergoing chemotherapy.
Company founder, Katie Garner, found that going into hospital once a week with her mum, a massive eye opener, in terms of what chemotherapy patients go through. And how, having a selection of products that can help to make chemotherapy an easier process, can make a big difference to patients undergoing the treatment. Since launching Chemo Care Hampers, Katie has had lots of products kindly donated by companies wanting to help her cause, as well as buying some of the products herself. The companies that have donated products include beauty and wellness brand, Puriskin, handmade stationary company, Llama Talks, handmade soaps from The Soap Dish Gifts company, and soy candles from Wax the Matter. Katie has also started a Just Giving Page to help cover the costs of the hampers. These are distributed by hand in Worthing Hospital and by post to other locations within the UK.
Katie Garner, Founder of Chemo Care Hampers stated:
“ It started from how I was (and still am) buying endless things for my mum to help make her journey that little bit more smooth. We thought how lovely it would be if it all just came in one box, to show that someone understands and cares”
