Thank you very much. I requested the chemo care kit for my son, he is 15 and in treatment. He has brain cancer. I appreciate your support and encouragement.

Kristina

I received my packaged today. Thank you. I love 💕 everything you sent me.

Taylor
{

God bless you! I can’t begin to describe the timing of this email. I am so inspired by your dedication to helping cancer warriors and I pray that I may become one so that I may help and give back too. 

Chemotherapy is a battle and by the grace of God, I keep getting up, showing up and will never give up.

Aubrey
{

Just having you reach out has made me cry. People are so cold and stare at you. This is the loneliest experience I have ever felt.

I thank you for reaching out and for the support you are sending me. Nobody tells you about the side effects or how you will start to feel inhuman. I thank you again from the bottom of my heart.

Jennifer
{

Thank you. I so appreciate the Chemo Care Kit. I heard about your organization through a friend of a friend, an acquaintance, and through the cancer survivor chain, a person gets to know as traveling on this journey.

Thank you for helping me thrive. Yes, indeed, there are many challenges we face. There are hard days, then really rough days, and some better days. Keep going, never stop, and one foot in front of the other. Keeping hope and positivity.

Diane
{

Thank you!!!! I found you 1 night when I could not sleep because all kinds of things were going through my head and noticed that you cared for chemo people, so I really thank you.

Unfortunately, for chemo and cancer, I’ve lost a lot of friends. I guess it’s just as hard for people to understand what diseases do to people, but I’m still fighting.

Bari
{

Thank you for doing what you do and supporting all of us from afar.

Kat

I actually received my package yesterday! Just in time as this week, I had a complication at chemo where my needle backed out of the port and chemo leaked into my chest/arm so the port pillow has come in SO handy today. I want to thank you so much for the package, everything I received was so thoughtful and appreciated. Once I am better I would like to get in contact with you to see how I can help give back. I would love to turn my situation into a positive and help others feel hope!

Laura
{

It meant the world to me to receive this care package. This whole process is hard and often very isolating, but finding folks like you helps to create that community of caring to get through it all. That little pillow designed for chemo ports is so helpful to me since I attached it to my seatbelt rather than putting a towel there since the belt rubs against the area of treatment. It’s much softer and makes it easier to drive without friction on my pelvic/stomach area.

Angela
{

I did receive it! Thank you so much, it definitely made me smile when I was having a rough day. And the port pillow has been very helpful. Thank you again, for everything.

Mickelle

Alicia

Thank you so much for my amazing kit! It’s amazing what you’re doing for all of us.

Danielle
{

The cushion for the seatbelt is awesome, now I can use the seatbelt normally, everything else is great. Thank you so much, and I hope as soon as my nightmare is over, I can help someone else. I appreciate you.

Abigail
{

Thank you so much. I love the Chemo Care Kit. God bless what you are doing for others that are going through treatments or warriors that have survived.

I got my care package today and I just want to say thank you so much. I will use all of it especially the port pillow and back scratcher. The satin face masks are very nice too!
What an uplifting thing to get in your mail. Put a big smile on my face!!!

Carrie
{

I wanted to take the time out to tell you’ll thank you for my care package. I was recently diagnosed in Oct. of 2023 with stage 4 colon cancer. One of the worst times of my life. I’m grateful and really appreciate all that you’ll do to lift those such as myself up. May the Lord continue to pour in your hearts.

A Message From Our Founder

I’m Rachel Minion, the co-founder of Beyond Basic Needs.

I was diagnosed with Cancer of the Appendix seven years ago in my mid-thirties. The minute you hear the word cancer, your life changes in ways only a cancer warrior can describe. Not only did it change for me, but for my entire support network.

After I recovered, I dedicated my life to helping other cancer warriors and friends in my support network.

In our attempt to change the world, my husband and I created Beyond Basic Needs to help our community thrive.
