This versatile mastectomy pillow is a great post-operative support pillow. It can help to relieve underarm pressure to sensitive surgical areas and can also be used to brace other painful areas as well as helping to protect the chest and abdomen from being squeezed by a seatbelt during car journeys. The mastectomy pillow will also help your loved one find a more comfortable sleeping position - supporting the sensitive area and providing personalised comfort and support. The heart shaped design is made from super soft, faux velvet and comes with ribbon fastening to help secure the pillow in a comfortable position. Mastectomy pillow is wipe clean only. Warning: keep away from fire and naked flame. Not suitable for young children due to long ribbons - potential entanglement hazard.
These super cute, fluffy socks will keep your loved one's feet cosy and warm during their treatment. 98% polyester fibre, 2% spandex.
Therapeutic Gel Beads
Some patients suffer from pain after surgery and this reusable, hand-held gel pack can help to soothe minor pain and discomfort in targeted areas of the body. It has an elastic hand strap for easy application, can be used either warm or cold to comfort and soothe and is fragranced with lavender, mandarin and geranium to add a sense of calm.

Evian Spray - 50ml
The World’s favourite mineral water brand has created a lightweight mist for all ages. This 50ml can will fit into a hospital bag and is perfect for keeping skin hydrated and refreshed. It is hypo-allergenic and has a neutral pH, completely free from chemical treatments and is safe for all skin types. It can be particularly refreshing if skin is feeling dry and sensitive from treatment and can also provide welcome relief if your loved one is feeling nauseous from treatment.
Antibacterial Hand Gel - 100ml
This hand sanitising gel with antimicrobial content is suitable for cleaning and protecting hands when it is not possible to use soap and water and is perfect if your loved one is laid up after surgery. Some hand sanitisers can play havoc with our hands from the drying effect of the alcohol, but this hand gel contains ‘squalane’ derived from a plant source. Squalane is particularly beneficial for soothing dry and inflamed skin conditions such as eczema and is natural, safe, and effective for all skin types. Contains 62% alcohol which guarantees high antimicrobial effectiveness.
Vermints - Peppermint - 40g
Many people feel nauseous after surgery. Mint is well known for easing nausea and we’ve specifically chosen Vermints because they have ditched all the gross, health-harming, chemically-modified stuff that you usually find in mints and made super tasty mints from nature and nature only.
Waterless Shampoo Cap
Many people tell us one of the worst parts of having surgery is that they struggle to wash their hair due to concerns over getting dressings wet coupled with an inability to lift their arms, and we all know how unwashed hair can make us feel. The waterless shampoo cap provides a 'rinse free' hair washing solution contained within the shampoo cap and will enable your loved one to wash their hair effectively and easily without using water.
A breast cancer diagnosis is stressful. From the moment your loved one opens the spacemask self-heating sleep mask, they will be temptingly invited on a journey of relaxation. Spacemasks make a great, indulgent treat when facing the stress of cancer treatment.
Here For You Postcard
Our exclusive 'Here For You' postcard is a perfect way to send a message to your loved one. We can write the message for you - just let us know when you check out.
