What You Need To Know About A Chemo Care Kit

For many of us, cancer is a scary word. We never want to hear it, and we pray it never affects our loved ones.

However, for far too many people, cancer is a real part of their lives. In the U.S. alone, it’s estimated that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lifetimes.

A cancer diagnosis is one of the most challenging things a person can go through. Cancer treatment can be long, grueling, and expensive.

We know that if you or a loved one have been diagnosed with cancer, you probably feel overwhelmed, frightened, and alone.

But you are not. Beyond Basic Needs is here to support you.

One way we do that is by providing Chemo Care Kits to cancer warriors undergoing chemotherapy.

What are Chemo Care Kits?

Chemo Care Kits are designed to inspire, uplift, and help our community thrive during this challenging time, filled with items specifically chosen to provide comfort and support during chemotherapy treatment.

A Chemo Care Kit is designed for cancer warriors undergoing chemotherapy. Each kit contains a port pillow, comfy socks, lip balm, and a variety of goodies that these warriors deserve.

Each kit is different, but all are lovingly assembled to bring cheer and hope to patients during this difficult time.

How are Chemo Care Kits funded?

We rely on donations from kindhearted people to fund our Chemo Care Kits. 100% of all donations go to fulfill these kits at no cost to the recipient.

We believe no one should worry about how they will afford basic necessities while fighting for their life.

If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with cancer, know that Beyond Basic Needs is here to support you every step of the way.
