My Favorite Way To Comfort a Cancer Patient

Tuesday, April 24, 2018

Often our first response when we hear that someone we know has been diagnosed with cancer is shock. Then we run through a list of questions in our minds. How can that be possible? Why did it happen to her? Eventually we shift from reaction mode to action mode, and we want to do something to help show our love and support.

I learned pretty quickly when my sister was diagnosed with endometrial cancer and a dear friend was diagnosed with breast cancer that any small act of kindness is greatly appreciated. A simple card with a thoughtful sentiment seems small, but in the eyes of the recipient, it's a grand gesture. Today my sister and my friend are cancer-free and have long put their days of chemotherapy treatments behind them. Although the long, dark days of chemo may no longer be part of their lives, I can safely say that my sister and friend will never forget those incredibly difficult days.

I recently discovered a company that I wish I had known about when my sister and friend were going through their chemotherapy treatments. Wrapped In Love offers stylish apparel and accessories for women with cancer or those who are recovering from therapies and/or surgeries. At at time when women are likely feeling their worst, Wrapped In Love aims to restore dignity and beauty while providing comfort and style with its collection of head wraps, ponchos, shoulder wraps, fleece blankets, and even tote bags.

Karen McDonald is the founder Wrapped In Love and drew the inspiration for her collection from her mother. Through her products, Karen aims to help patients maintain their dignity and feel good about themselves despite the effects of cancer treatments. Wrapped In Love products make thoughtful and functional cancer gifts for any woman undergoing treatment or convalescing. The items are easy to put on, are comfortable, are chemo port accessible, and are pretty enough to wear out.

When my sister and friend were undergoing chemo treatments, they both commented on how cold they were. The fleece blankets from Wrapped In Love are cozy, soft, and warm. They roll up easily and can be transported in a small bag for chemo treatments. If you are looking for breast cancer gifts or chemotherapy gifts, you can't go wrong with any item from the Wrapped In Love collection.
