Great chemo patient bag.
on March 19, 2015
I like it a lot. It's a bit larger than what I was looking for, but I chose to purchase it anyway. I love the fact that it can zip closed if you want it to and still functions well as an open type bag if you don't want to use the zipper.
Why I bought it.
1.) My friend is having chemo and I wanted to make a "chemo" bag for her.
2.) Her favorite color is blue. (I would have loved this if it had come in a solid blue.)
3.) I stuffed it with items that other chemo patients said would have been nice to have or where thoughtful gifts people gave them.
4.) The bag in the picture has a 60 x 70 Soft luxury throw in it. (Chem gets cold)
5.) There are individually wrapped hard candies, especially peppermint and ginger, as mouths get dry during chemo.
6.) Video's since reading is hard after starting chemo.
7.) NON FRAGRANT lotion. (skin gets dry and sense of smell is heightened making you nauseous)
8.) Herbal, all natural lip balm (again dry, crack etc during chemo)
9.) Blue non-skid slippers. (again chemo - cold)
Even with all of this there is plenty of room for more. I added pictures to show size.
She does NOT carry the movies or a tone of candy etc when she goes to chemo so the bag is lighter to carry than when I gave it to her.
If you are doing the same. Then add items specific to their likes. Example a magazine with MOSTLY pictures, again reading is difficult. I put in gardening pictures.
