Perfect Care Package for a Breast Cancer Patient

I couldn't let this month close out without talking about breast cancer awareness.

Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.

The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat.

October is set aside for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month which is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer.

Unfortunately, we have all been affected by this disease in one way or another.  How do you support a friend or loved one with breast cancer? It's often hard to know what someone really needs. Shuttling children and casseroles can be a huge help, but what if you want to do more?

I have put together some ideas that would be the perfect pick me ups for a friend or loved one.  You could include these in a gift basket or give them as gifts individually.

1. Spongelle

Spongellé Infused Body Buffers are an amazing way to care for your skin.

I have had the opportunity to use these wonderful products and love them!  Not only do they smell amazing, but my skin felt so soft and moisturized after using.  I love how it comes all in one, so you can just hang the sponge in your shower and save a few steps in your morning routine.imageSpongelle

It cleanses, exfoliates, hydrates and massages with gentle cleansers that are derived from exotic extracts thus easy on the skin.

2. Aurorae Yoga Towel

This Aurorae yoga towel is a super absorbent microfiber towel which is perfect over your yoga mat to prevent your hands from slipping.  It  absorbs perspiration, unlike any other towel can.  Also, it comes in a beautiful array of colors.


During the month of October, Aurorae will donate a $1 to breast cancer research for each pink sport and swim towel sold on Amazon. Just another reason to grab one for yourself also!

3. P.J. Salvage button front pajamas

Who doesn't love some comfy pj's? These not only are comfy, but cute and stylish at the same time.  Consider a button front for those who have undergone surgery.

4. Why not me? by Mindy Kaling

Why Not Me? book

Need a feel good, laugh at loud book?  Mind Kaling's new book, Why not me? is the perfect girl power novel of the year.

5. Stella and Dot- Resilience Cuff

The resilience cuff has micro pave stones accented with hand-wrapped thread on a delicate vintage rose gold cuff with arrow motif.

The resilience cuff was co-designed by Cobie Smulders. Until October 31st, 2015, Stella & Dot will donate 20% of the purchase price of the Resilience Cuff to the Noreen Fraser Foundation,a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for breakthrough research that advances precision medicine for the prevention and treatment of women’s cancers..

6. Butterfly Scarf

A part of the White House Black Market Give Hope collection, this beautiful butterfly scarf can be tied, draped, and paired with sweaters, blazers and jackets for an instant hit of color and beauty. For each scarf purchased, WHBM will donate $45 to Living Beyond Breast Cancer.
