Undergoing chemotherapy is a difficult time for our women cancer fighters. As caregivers, we don't always know the right thing to say or what to give to support them. They also have their own struggles with managing symptoms and figuring what types of clothing to wear.
Eye masks, lip balms, and herbal teas may be great gift ideas for some women, but what about those who are looking for something more meaningful?
If you're looking for unique gift ideas to include in your chemo care package, be sure to read our top 5 gift recommendations. The list goes beyond physical items.
