Perfect Mother’s Day Gifts for Moms Fighting Cancer(April 21, 2011)
Pittsburgh, PA, April 21, 2011 --(PR.com)-- While chocolate, perfume and dining out are popular Mother’s Day gifts, moms having surgery, chemotherapy or radiation for cancer may not be able to fully enjoy these items due to treatment side effects. These may include extreme fatigue, hot flashes, nausea and skin sensitivity – especially to certain chemicals, fragrances and the sun. Online shopping resource CancerBeGlammed.com, which carefully selects products to help women recover from cancer in comfort and style, suggests these great gift ideas that show Mom you appreciate what she’s going through and to thank her for her courage and love.
· “Mommy & Me” Matching Robes and Children’s Pajamas
· Beautiful Tea Set and Soothing, Healthy Teas
One of the best gifts you can give your wife or mother is spending time together. Trade stories and laughs over a healthy, soothing cup of tea, which has many benefits that help combat the side effects of chemotherapy or radiation such as nausea, stomach upset and mouth sores. Throw out those cracked mugs and give mom a beautiful tea set, then snuggle down to share a cup.
· Apple iPod Shuffle, Featuring Mom’s Favorite Music
Music is one of the best ways to relax while away during chemotherapy treatment, long waits at the oncologist’s office or in the carpool line. Make mom a personal Mother’s Day gift of music by downloading her favorite tunes onto an iPod Shuffle. The Shuffle is small, lightweight and can be clipped onto clothes or a chemo tote bag.
· Night Sweats and Hot Flash Helpers
Chemotherapy-induced menopause can turn even the most cool-headed mom hot. A wicking-wear pillowcase draws moisture away from the skin to keep it cool and dry for a better night’s sleep or afternoon nap. Pair it with hot flash/night sweats pajamas or a gown for a Mother’s Day gift that everyone in the family will be grateful for.
· Sun Protective Clothing for “Fun in the Sun” Together
The sun is shining and it’s time to head outdoors for a family Mother’s Day walk or race, such as your local Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. The sun feels great, but its harmful rays are even more damaging to chemotherapy or radiation ultra-sensitive skin. Sun protective clothing and accessories such as hats, wraps, exercise jackets and scarves with UPF 50+ sun protection built in, make a perfect Mother’s Day gift that can be enjoyed all year long.
