We all love getting care packages in the mail — from tasty treats at the holidays to hometown reminders if we’re living far from loved ones. Imagine the delight your loved one with a cancer diagnosis will receive when a package including items they not only want, but actually need, arrives on the doorstep — free of charge! The CareBox Program is an innovative resource for cancer patients going through cancer treatments. The organization places supplies and essential personal-care items, that are not typically covered by insurance items, right in their hands.
How Do CareBox Packages Help Cancer Patients?
When cancer patients are undergoing treatment, they need to keep both their bodies and minds strong to fight off the illness. However, that’s often easier said than done. Treatments like chemotherapy can weaken immunes systems. Many cancer patients worry that exposure to someone with a minor cold could be debilitating, or could even prove deadly. Patients need to be both alert and prepared to fend off sickness. Although many prepare for chemotherapy and cancer treatments, the side effects of many cancer treatments, there are many unexpected adjustments that must be made to their daily routines. To help patients meet those challenges, CareBox delivers free care supplies to cancer patients at home to prevent malnutrition, infections & injuries.
CareBox Supplies that Offer Comfort to Cancer Patients
CareBox is a one-stop shop resource for cancer patients. Patients can sign up on the site and make a list of items from which they could benefit.
Common CareBox products and supplies include:
- Heating pads and neck pillows to help with muscle aches or pains
- Masks and gloves for personal protection against infections.
- Sick bags and ointments to treat the unfortunate side effects of some cancer treatments.
Many cancer patients quickly discover the cost of medical bills as well as the indirect, out-of pocket expenses of cancer add up quickly, often times leading to debt. Even though the free items in each CareBox are mostly low-cost, every dollar saved can be a big help to your loved one.
How do Cancer Patients Receive a CareBox?
To participate in the CareBox program each cancer patient follows a few simple steps.
- Provides your photo
- Tell your story and the type of cancer you’ve been diagnosed with
- Share your wish list of cancer supplies and products
CareBox publishes each cancer patient’s story on their website. Customized boxes are packaged by volunteers and then delivered straight to the patient’s door.
How Can You Help CareBox Deliver More Supplies?
CareBox staffers say they’ve seen donations from everyone, including friends, family, current patients, cancer survivors, and complete strangers. Supporters are encouraged to contact the CareBox organization to learn how to get involved.
