The Comfort Box from Cancer Care Parcel + An Easy Competition

Cancer Care Parcel is a UK business selling thoughtful, comforting and appropriate cancer gifts.

They have a wide range of cancer care parcels covering every patient – men, women, teens and kids, as well as hospital parcels and parcels specifically for chemotherapy, radiotherapy and cancer drug therapy.

After Dr Shara Cohen was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013 she found there was very little time to just relax, take it all in and give herself ‘me’ time.

With all the appointments, liaising with work, telling the people who needed to be told… there was little time to digest what was happening, research the practicalities or to just relax. So she set up Cancer Care Parcel, to enable children and adults with cancer to take some of the worries away and bring some calm back into their lives.

Shara sent us the Comfort Box to review and we just love it. It’s full of thoughtful and helpful items for anyone going through cancer and we think, a much better gift than the often-bought bunch of flowers. It’s also suitable for men or for women. We did a video of all the contents in the box, watch it below.

Here is a glimpse of some of the other parcels available on their website too:

There are even parcels for finishing treatment and a Cancer Inspiration Pack. A lot of thought has gone into this business and every gift.

We particularly think a Cancer Care Parcel would make a wonderful gift from a person’s employer – who might be short on time and perhaps unsure what is appropriate to buy – the Cancer Care Parcel website has plenty of options and takes all the hassle out of choosing a thoughtful gift. The website offers an easy purchase experience, fast shipping (nationwide in Ireland too) and even a way to share the cost of a parcel among a group of people.

If you would like to win the Comfort Box shown in the video above, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post or email us at with the word ‘Enter’. Competition open to Ireland only. We’ll announce the winner on Happy Magazine on 27 July.

Our Comfort Box is slightly different from the one shown in the image above – the Lavender Eye Pillow was replaced with a Cushioned Eye Mask to make the box appropriate for a man or a woman.
