What gift would a person with cancer like to receive for Christmas? The holidays take on a whole new meaning when there is a cancer diagnosis both for the patient and their family and friends. Cancer survivor Jean LaMantia provides ideas for holiday gift giving for that special person who because of a cancer diagnosis may appreciate some nurturing gifts this season.
Show warmth and concern to a cancer patient by choosing a gift that shows they are cared about. Some thoughtful gift ideas for the cancer patient include:
- A nice cozy blanket
- A heating pad or hot water bottle
- A soft hat will be especially welcomed by those who have lost their hair during treatment
- A copy of The Essential Cancer Treatment Nutrition Guide and Cookbook
- A home cooked meal delivered to their home
- A batch of homemade muffins
- Homemade meals that are frozen in individual servings, labelled and ready to be reheated
- A batch of chicken noodle soup
- Help with everyday chores such as taking the dog for a walk, driving the children to activities, or companionship during cancer treatments
The Essential Cancer Treatment Nutrition Guide and Cookbook, released this year, is receiving praise from cancer survivors such as Irene Watson, a cancer patient from Austin, Texas says “I encourage anyone diagnosed with cancer or with a family member who has been so diagnosed to check out The Essential Cancer Treatment Nutrition Guide & Cookbook. It will give you a better understanding of the importance of nutritional health and how to achieve it. Cancer diagnosis is devastating enough, but with nutritional support many of the side effects from treatment can be eliminated or lessened.”
Valerie Lull, cancer survivor of Portland, Oregon had this to say about The Essential Cancer Treatment Nutrition Guide and Cookbook. “This is the most wonderful book! I only wish that it had been around when I had cancer. It is one of the most comprehensive cancer guides I have ever come across. It is written simply so the average lay person can read and understand and has enough information to attract a pro.”
While every gift is appreciated, there are special ones that will really connect and make a lasting memory of your thoughtfulness. The experience of the author's personal struggle with cancer as well as that of her father, and her professional credentials as a registered dietitian makes The Essential Cancer Treatment Nutrition Guide and Cookbook a go-to resource that can truly resonate with cancer patients and their caregivers.
On sale for under $20 on amazon.com and barnsandnoble.com it is easy to get and an affordable gift that will be a constant companion to any cancer patient and a consistent reminder of your thoughtfulness and concern.
Don’t despair if a favorite bookstore is out of stock. The first printing of The Essential Cancer Treatment Nutrition Guide and Cookbook has sold out, but a reprint has been ordered and will be available Dec 5th plenty of time before Christmas.
