Radiation treatment is a scary treatment option. If a friend or family member is about to start radiotherapy or they’re part-way through and starting to flag, our Radiotherapy Relaxing Boost Box is a practical and thoughtful way of showing your support. Each item has been handpicked to help ease the physical and emotional side effects of radiotherapy treatment.
Our Radiotherapy Relaxing Boost Box contains the following treats:
- Relaxing, Hand poured Soy Wax Candle
Many people undergoing radiotherapy feel tired - a lot of the time. This gorgeous, hand poured, soy wax candle from Lolly Rocket is the perfect way to encourage your loved one to take time out to rest and relax. The Mandarin Orange & Amber soothingly scented candle is made in small batches using the highest grade 100% natural Soy wax and the finest quality fragrance oils for a beautiful scent from the first to the last burn. The jar measures 8.5cm high x 6.5cm diameter and has a burn time of approximately 40 hours.
- Positivity Postcard
We include one of our Positivity Postcards in each of our Radiotherapy Boost Boxes with space on the back for your handwritten message – which we can write for you if we’re sending the box directly to your loved one. Positivity Postcards are assigned at random with messages including ‘you are stronger than you think you are’, ‘the pig of persistence – keep going’, ‘the deep breaths pufferfish – you will get through this’ and ‘the chin up chicken’.
