It’s always a kind and thoughtful gesture to put together a care package for a friend who’s about to embark on a course of radiotherapy. Here’s a list of useful items to gather, either between a group of you or in one basket or bag.

  • Books - short story collections can be good
  • Kindle vouchers or Audible membership
  • Nice pen and notebook
  • Refillable stainless steel water bottle
  • Set of earbuds
  • Neck cushion
  • Ultra-soft bed socks
  • Boredom busters - puzzle books, colouring books, sewing kits etc
  • Portable battery power pack
  • Ginger or peppermint sweets
  • Peppermint tea
  • A light cotton wrap or kimono
  • A soft, light, fleecy blanket
  • Back scratcher
  • Soft eye mask
