Chemo Care Hampers

Introducing Chemo Care Hampers, an innovative new concept for helping to make chemotherapy more bearable for cancer patients

11 August 2016 11:50

UNDER EMBARGO UNTIL 15 August 2016 09:30

Chemo Care Hampers, an innovative new company, offers chemotherapy patients hampers of products specially selected to help make chemotherapy sessions more bearable, and to help relieve everyday symptoms, as well as to bring a little joy.

Company founder, Katie Garner, created Chemo Care Hampers after regularly attending her mum’s chemotherapy sessions with her. After seeing how draining chemotherapy can be for patients and treating her mum to little pick me ups to help, she realised that it would be much easier and more convenient if all the essentials for chemotherapy patients could be got in one go, and so, the concept behind Chemo Care Hampers was born.

Chemo Care Hampers delivers a selection of specially selected health and beauty products to patients undergoing chemotherapy.

Company founder, Katie Garner, found that going into hospital once a week with her mum, a massive eye opener, in terms of what chemotherapy patients go through. And how, having a selection of products that can help to make chemotherapy an easier process, can make a big difference to patients undergoing the treatment. Since launching Chemo Care Hampers, Katie has had lots of products kindly donated by companies wanting to help her cause, as well as buying some of the products herself. The companies that have donated products include beauty and wellness brand, Puriskin, handmade stationary company, Llama Talks, handmade soaps from The Soap Dish Gifts company, and soy candles from Wax the Matter. Katie has also started a Just Giving Page to help cover the costs of the hampers. These are distributed by hand in Worthing Hospital and by post to other locations within the UK.


Katie Garner, Founder of Chemo Care Hampers stated:
“ It started from how I was (and still am) buying endless things for my mum to help make her journey that little bit more smooth. We thought how lovely it would be if it all just came in one box, to show that someone understands and cares”

Editor’s Notes:

Chemo Care Hampers, is the innovative new company, offering chemotherapy patients a selection of health and wellness products to help make chemotherapy treatments that little bit more bearable. Helping to relieve everyday symptoms that come with chemotherapy, as well as making life more joyful. The concept behind Chemo Care Hampers is to ensure that cancer sufferer’s journeys are a little bit less lonely and frightening, and that they know someone out there cares about them.

Katie’s mum is currently undergoing chemotherapy, which was the driving force behind Chemo Care Hampers. After attending each chemotherapy session with her mum and treating her to lots of little bits and bobs, she knew she wanted to make getting chemotherapy patients the items that the need, more easy and convenient. After chatting with her mum and giving out a couple of trial hampers to other chemotherapy patients, Katie found that all the feedback she received was positive, both from patients and nurses who she shared the concept with, and so, decided to put the idea into practice and Chemo Care Hampers was born.

Although Katie wants Chemo Care Hampers to be a success, she isn’t doing it to make an income from. Chemo Care Hampers is a business that she set up simply to help make life easier for chemotherapy patients, not to make money from – it’s a labour of love.
