Unite for Her Care Box: The Perfect Gift for Anyone going through Breast Cancer

Unite For Her Care Box: The Perfect Gift for Anyone Going Through Breast Cancer

AnaOno Founder and Designer Dana had the chance to speak with Unite for HER Founder and CEO Sue Weldon about her organization. When Sue was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004, she began searching for information on therapies that would complement the medical treatments she was receiving. What she discovered was a lack of easily accessible resources on topics like nutrition, acupuncture, massage, yoga, counseling, and other ways for breast cancer patients to enhance their wellness and care for their emotional, spiritual, and physical needs.

Since its establishment as a nonprofit organization in 2009, Unite for HER's cornerstone has been to bridge that gap for breast cancer patients, focusing on wellness initiatives that will positively impact their health, as well as the health of all women and girls. Their mission is to enrich the health and well-being of those diagnosed with breast and ovarian cancers - for life - by funding and delivering integrative therapies.

As a Friend, How Can You Help a Loved One?

When a loved one, friend, or colleague is diagnosed with cancer, it is difficult to know what to say, do, or how to help. There is no instruction guide on how to provide support during a challenging time. However, a thoughtful post-diagnosis gift or goodie bag filled with wellness and self-care products can help you show your support and encourage fast recovery.

The HER Care Box was developed by Unite for HER's team of medical and wellness professionals and is designed to help empower, educate, and bring balance to the emotional and physical well-being of those affected by breast or ovarian cancer during treatment and beyond. AnaOno products are offered in all size boxes alongside various other products that support the emotional and physical well-being of those affected by breast or ovarian cancer.

Other products you will find in the HER Care Box include relaxing teas, nourishing beauty products, and more wonderful goodies. All sizes also include educational resources and the "Beauty is Wellness Product Guide" by Jolene Hart.

HER care box is available to ship nationwide, so you can send the gift of care and provide support to women across the United States. Plus, 100 percent of all proceeds benefit Unite for HER's Wellness Program, supporting women affected by breast and ovarian cancers in the Philadelphia region.

Other Ways to Support Breast Cancer Survivors

We know that, as a friend or family member of a breast cancer patient, you want to do everything you can to make diagnosis, surgery, and recovery less painful. In addition to the HER Care Box listed above, we recommend some luxurious loungewear, a pair of slippers, and anything that supports your loved one's self-care routine.

The unfortunate fact is that many survivors don't get the chance to practice positive self-care during treatment or recovery, so anything you can do to help them feel more relaxed will be beneficial. You may also consider giving them an AnaOno gift card so they can select their own post-surgery bra or lounge apparel.

The biggest and best gift for a breast cancer patient in your life is support. Be sure that you offer it every chance you get and always be understanding if they are not open to visitors or check-ins. Simple things like bringing them a meal or taking the dog for a walk can make a big difference to someone going through breast cancer.
