When you are diagnosed with sarcoma, your world changes in the blink of an eye. Life is suddenly filled with extreme angst and the unknown.
Our Patient Support Advocate, the late Jack Gibson knew this feeling all too well, and it was Jack who spent hours of his time thinking about those things that made a difference throughout his treatment.
With the exception of the rug he loved to take with him during his visits to hospital,(which we are yet to source) we have put together kits that reflect comfort, a little luxury and practicality. Kits that provide momentary joy to those living with a sarcoma diagnosis.
Woolen beanies, lip balm by moogoo, skin products crafted for those going through cancer treatment from Scout Cosmetics, exquisite product from Glasshouse Fragrances, silk eye masks and sleepwear from Peter Alexander Sleepwear, The Tie Dye Project long and short sleeve apparel, silk/ satin pillow covers, are provided in the standard kit .
Kits are tailored to the needs of each patient, and we cater for all ages and gender.
We can only do this because of the exceptional generosity of the partners we have in place for this very important project. Their participation and willingness to support our work has enabled this programme to expand exponentially over the past five years.
Suffice to say, this would not be possible without their support.
