COMFORT Kits are designed to be used during the time breast cancer patients are receiving chemotherapy or radiation treatment.
The kits are the brain-child of former nurse, Julie Lamont.
She has carefully developed a small range of kits to suit women and men who have gone through breast cancer surgery.
They contain chemotherapy-friendly personal care products, Australian-made where possible, which come in a beautifully presented kit.
"They are used to ease and soothe the more common side effects of chemotherapy or radiation,” Julie said.
In the kits are-
- Mouthwash - soothing, gentle, moisturising and alcohol-free, and a toothbrush - soft is recommended.
- Jelly beans - for that awful metallic taste you can get in your mouth, and peppermints - for nausea..
- Lip balm - for dry, cracked or sore lips.
- Straws - To help when the mouth is sore.
- Nausea band - the natural way to ease a queasy stomach.
- Sick bags - so you won't be caught out, handy for the glove box or handbag.
- Face masks - to prevent catching the flu.
- Hand sanitiser - to kill germs that may cause illness, when hand washing isn't an option.
- Heat pack - for all those aches and pains.
- Shampoo - non-drying, non-soap, and a hair net.
- Non-slip socks - for those cold slippery hospital floors.
- Moisturising cream - for red, swollen, painful and even cracked skin.
- Digital thermometer.
- A 100% silk scarf.
- A toiletries bag.
