Cancer may have started the fight, but I will finish it.

Initiatives

The Therapy Kit

Chemotherapy is the process of using different drugs to treat cancer. In simple language chemo destroys cancer cells; However, it also attacks a few normal cells like the hair, skin, mouth and the gut. Quite often patients have digestive issues and poor oral hygiene prior to starting the chemotherapy. These patients are likely to face more of these side effects. The same is seen with Radiation as well.

The Therapy Kit will help patients change personal habits to either prevent the aforementioned side effects or manage them if they occur.

The Therapy Kit contains all the essentials for Oral care, Skin care and Gut care with printed instructions for use.

A short questionnaire documenting the patient’s personal habits is filled before the kit is handed over. This questionnaire will help us gauge the effectiveness of this kit.

A small inspiration note is included to motivate them in their journey through cancer.
