Sometimes the littlest things make the biggest impact in the life of person in the process of healing. Show your #TroubleMaker that you care by creating a thoughtful care package that contains items that will help them deal with possible side effects of their treatment. And, a new stuffed animal friend is a MUST!
Scarf, Blanket, Socks & Beanie:
Because it’s common to feel cold after treatment and because hospitals are kept a bit colder to ward off bacteria and germs, a scarf, warm blanket, beanie, and fuzzy socks would be perfect items to include in your care package.
Dry lips are a very common side effect for various treatments, so treat your #TroubleMaker with a silky lip balm.
Story or Activity Book:
To help activate their imagination, choosing a great storybook or an activity book may be exactly what they need to redirect their thoughts and alleviate some concerns through humor.
Mints or Gum:
Some treatments can leave a very bad taste in your mouth. Having yummy mints or flavorful gum can really help your #TroubleMaker get past the yuckiness.
Staying hydrated is especially important all the times, but especially when your #TroubleMaker is going through the healing process.
Music Gift Card:
Research has shown that music is very therapeutic for a person going through the healing process. It soothes the mind and may help prevent nausea, vomiting, and other side effects.
