Our awesome idea is based on the simple yet powerful act of giving. A cancer diagnosis is devastating for the patient as well as their family and friends.
Let's give a 'hug' to cancer patients across Lake Macquarie undergoing treatment during COVID-19.
The impact of the pandemic is especially difficult for those fighting cancer, their family and friends. With suppressed immune systems, COVID-19 poses a strong risk to many patients currently undergoing chemotherapy and radiation.
A Big Hug Box is a gift of connection during difficult and uncertain times. Each box is hand-selected and made with care to bring a moment of joy to each cancer patient and promote wellness throughout their treatment. Inside the boxes are practical and empowering products sourced from Aussie small businesses such as anti-nausea tea and biscuits for use after chemo; specially created lip balm to soothe dry, cracked lips; inspiring messages of hope to help each patient with their journey and more.
