We Provide Hope
To Those in Need
Help us create a better today for cancer warriors undergoing chemo.
For Cancer Warriors undergoing chemotherapy, we provide Chemo Care Kits. We believe these kits inspire, uplift, and help our community thrive during this challenging time. 100% of all donations to Beyond Basic Needs goes to fulfilling these kits at no cost to the recipient.
In addition, we connect those in need to the technology that makes it easy to manage and get help for basic services including food delivery, cleaning services, transportation services and other basic needs at no charge to the individual. We believe these services are imperative to improving the quality of life after a medical event.

A Port Pillow protects the port from the seat belt.
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.

What People Are Saying About Our Chemo Care Kits

I’m so grateful! Thank you so much, I really appreciate the sweet gesture, a lot of the items were so helpful through treatment.
This bag is incredible! And very well thought out. I just love it. Thank you for doing this and helping all of us who need your support.
Thank you so much for my care package and the thoughtfulness. May GOD continue to Bless You… I’m starting my first chemo treatment today.
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!!!
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.
