Dear Lynne,

Just to say a million thank yous for my chemo gift bag. It's choc full of practical items that will be a joy to use as they will help ease the side effects of chemo.

I particularly LOVE the ❤️ shaped cushion and crochet blanket 😁 Thanks again for the care and attention that you've poured into the Giftbag x

“We are delighted to be able to give these lovely Chemogiftbags to our breast cancer patients who are undergoing chemotherapy at The Manor Hospital in Oxford. So far, our patients have been overwhelmed by how much thought and kindness has gone into making the bags. The content is amazing, and the products are so useful."

Tracy our Ambassador met Jo.

"Just wanted to say a big thank you to Tracy and everyone involved at Chemogiftbags. These last few months has been a complete nightmare. Being diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer @ 38 was a complete shock to the system.
I am due to start chemo very soon and started panicking after reading other stories about preparing a chemo bag. I started researching this and found that there were quite a few items that are really essential. Needless to say someone put me in touch with Chemogiftbags and they delivered me a huge bag the very next day with absolutely everything I needed.
I am so thank you for the team that puts these bags together as you can tell that they really thought about it and care. My favourite item is the heart shaped cushion as it made me feel special, loved and reminded me that there are people out there that still care.
Shout out to the Chemogiftbags team."

"Belatedly, big thanks to all involved with Chemogiftbags: those who thought up the idea, made or supplied the gifts, or organised their distribution. I was amazed to be unexpectedly given such a large bagful of goodies, and overwhelmed by the thoughtfulness & generosity of the givers to someone they didn’t even know - it made me feel honoured and valued.

I especially love and appreciate two crocheted items, beautifully and skilfully handmade by someone with an artistic eye: a rug/shawl in lovely autumn colours, and a hat in heather colours with a ceramic button decoration. The hat keeps its shape well, fits snugly over my indoor headwear, looks great, is warm in this blowy outdoor weather, and has been much admired by friends. If you know their maker(s), please congratulate and thank them particularly. Other favourite items are the useful Moisturiser and the Codewords Puzzle Pad which keeps my brain enjoyably active and accompanies me to hospital waiting areas.”"

"I was so overwhelmed by this wonderful, kind and thoughtful gift bag. To all who donated and to Tracy and Lynne, thank you from the bottom of my heart xx."

"Thanks so much for my wonderful bag with wonderful useful items in the bag which will come in very handy at this very hard time that I’m going through but all you can do stay positive and stay strong”

Hi Lynne. Thank you so much for the big delivery of Chemogiftbags yesterday. You and your volunteers work relentlessly to ensure our chemotherapy patients receive these wonderful bags. They get heavier with each delivery thanks to the generosity of donations from people. Patients get quite emotional when we start unpacking the bag of all the products. It’s like Mary Poppins’ bag. It goes on forever but what it does it give patients an insight in to their chemotherapy journey through the contents of the bag. Everything in there has a use & a purpose, be it for a physical side effect or an emotional one. The age range of our patients is vast from 20’s through to 80’s and appreciated by all. We can’t thank you enough xx

Thank you so much to Chemogiftbags for this wonderful selection of gifts!
Everything in the bag is clearly so well thought out and will be really useful as I continue my treatment. Such a great pick-me-up at such a difficult time.
Thanks you! Xx

I have recently learnt about the chemogiftbags which you provide to service at this hospital. This is such a wonderful addition for our patients undergoing chemotherapy. They are very grateful to receive such a wonderful bag of treats and feel pampered and supported with what can be such a gruelling time for them.

Thank you for providing these to our breast care unit, and I hope we get to meet soon.

The Chemogiftbags are a joy to give out as they are always well received

It was a very scary day starting my chemo. I was quite anxious about what lay ahead. It was a lovely surprise to have someone waiting for me at the unit with a Chemo gift bag. It took a lot of tension out of the day and made me smile at a difficult time. It was lovely to think someone was thinking of me to have nominated me to receive this. The bag was filled with lots of nice goodies to help me through my treatment journey, specifically designed to help with the side effects of treatment.

I received my bag a few months back and it was such a thoughtful selection of items all of which I used and still use. I was also lucky enough to win the hamper that was on offer the other week. It was lovely to meet Lynne when she was kind enough to drop it round to me.
Glad my contribution will go towards more bags to help others like myself battling Cancer xxx

A wonderful charity and it really helped me at a very difficult time. Thanks Chemogiftbags!

Such an amazing idea. A little helpful pick me up at a time when very much needed. Thanks ladies!

I received a Chemogiftbag nearly 5 years ago. It was packed with essentials to help me through Chemo treatment. It had a beautifully made heart shaped cushion which I still use today when my arm is uncomfortable, a blanket to keep you warm plus lots of other goodies. All a great help.

I have just been the lucky recipient of a Chemogiftbag. Very touched by the thought that has gone into putting it together. It is packed full of items to help me on my journey and hopefully make it easier. What a wonderful idea. Thank you.

An amazing charity supporting our breast cancer patients through their treatment - thanks to everyone for these wonderful bags of goodies!

Definitely recommend Chemogiftbags. My sister received hers on Wednesday so many lovely goodies in the bag to help her on her journey Thank you Chemogiftbags- lovely, lovely people.

What a pick me up today amongst all those nerves pre starting chemo. Can’t thank you enough for my very extensive bag of goodies filled with love and thought x great job guys, well done x x

An amazing Charity who, deliver a much appreciated gift bag full of useful goodies to help you through your treatment.

Thank you so much for this very welcome gift The blanket and pillow were a godsend! And I know all the other lovely things are going to be very useful later down the line I recommend this entire bag of gifts with a full heart, with a promise that when I am more able I will find ways to contribute and by urging others to do the same when accepting this extraordinary gift.

I nominated my sister for a Chemogiftbag and she was thrilled with it. She was met on the morning of her first chemo session by a lovely lady and it definitely was a welcome distraction for her. It’s such a lovely idea, thank you so much.

A special gift for people at a dark time. Small comforts well thought out, to hopefully ease the side effects of chemotherapy & put a smile on their face.

What a wonderful idea. When you are going through this difficult journey it’s such a really nice, thoughtful thing to receive. Thank you.

I received a Chemogiftbag from Mary at Bracknell Healthspace last year. I was surprised to find my bag bursting at the seams containing a cushion, blanket, toiletries, hot & cold mugs, puzzle & note-books to pass the time & so much more. A totally amazing gift. Having recently had surgery I find the beautiful heart shaped cushion provides me with so much support in easing discomfort, day & night. Thank you to all who donate to this worthy cause & everyone involved at Chemogiftbags. A priceless & uplifting gift at a time when it’s needed the most. Bless you all.

Thank you for the lovely Chemogiftbags so many useful items and well thought out. it was lovely to meet Sandra & Bob who delivered the bag and have so much passion for the charity. I would definitely recommend contacting the charity as they really help people feel positive through a difficult time coping with the effects of cancer. Thanks again to everyone involved.

I was nominated in January by a friend when I was halfway through my chemo. I was in a low place and I was overwhelmed by the wonderful thoughtful gifts that were in the bag, they really lifted me. The cushion was my saviour in March after my op, and I am still using the Organic toiletries having just finished my radiotherapy. Thank you xx

Chemogiftbag arrived on my first chemotherapy day. It was nice surprise and lifted my mind up! Thank you so much for your support. I’ll donate money and support others.

An amazing bunch of people doing an amazing job x Thank you

I recently found out that my next door neighbour had a breast cancer diagnosis. Another friend has been on that same journey this past year and I had heard about the gift bags through her. I contacted Chemogiftbags and had a reply by email within about an hour. I nominated my neighbour as someone to receive a bag. Lynne from Chemogiftbags was thoughtful in setting up my collection of a bag and delivery to my neighbour, very promptly. Thanks for the great work you are doing Lynne and team.

My youngest daughter nominated me for a chemo gift bag after seeing a poster on the wall at Bracknell, Brants Bridge. I took delivery of it a couple of weeks later. The bag resembled that of Mary Poppins! So much kept coming out as I dived in to have a look. A lot of effort went into that bag, from the choice of goods to the quality of the home- produced crochet blanket and heart cushion. Still use cushion to sleep with at night as still have some discomfort and that helps enormously. Well done to all who put the work in to produce these bags. I was well chuffed with mine.

Hi I saw a poster for this amazing charity whilst having a check-up recently and have just donated 2 bottles of lacquers from @my Lil Nail Corner, looking forward to donating more, what a fab idea!! Emma has donated more items to Chemogiftbags thank you.
