Cancer is crazy. One minute we are healthy, and the next, we have cancer metastasizing throughout every organ of our body without us even knowing it. The alarming thing is that cancer nowadays is more common than we want to believe. Cancer incidence and mortality statistics reported by the American Cancer Society and other resources were used to create the list. To qualify as a common cancer for the list, the estimated annual incidence for 2019 had to be 40,000 cases or more. The most common type of cancer on the list is breast cancer, with 271,270 new cases expected in the United States in 2019. The next most common cancers are lung cancer and prostate cancer.

Because colon and rectal cancers are often referred to as “colorectal cancers,” these two cancer types are combined for the list. For 2019, the estimated number of new cases of colon cancer and rectal cancer are 101,420 and 44,180, respectively, adding to a total of 145,600 new cases of colorectal cancer.When someone is diagnosed with cancer, the majority of the time, they are treated with chemotherapy. Chemotherapy is a drug treatment that uses powerful chemicals to kill fast-growing cells in your body. Chemotherapy is most often used to treat cancer, since cancer cells grow and multiply much more quickly than most cells in the body. Many different chemotherapy drugs are available. Chemotherapy drugs can be used alone or in combination to treat a wide variety of cancers. Though chemotherapy is an effective way to treat many types of cancer, chemotherapy treatment also carries a risk of side effects. Some chemotherapy side effects are mild and treatable, while others can cause serious complications.

Many cancers also require radiation therapy. Radiation therapy (also called radiotherapy) is a cancer treatment that uses high doses of radiation to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. At low doses, radiation is used in x-rays to see inside your body, as with x-rays of your teeth or broken bones.At high doses, radiation therapy kills cancer cells or slows their growth by damaging their DNA. Cancer cells whose DNA is damaged beyond repair stop dividing or die. When the damaged cells die, they are broken down and removed by the body. External beam radiation therapy comes from a machine that aims radiation at your cancer. The machine is large and may be noisy. It does not touch you, but can move around you, sending radiation to a part of your body from many directions. External beam radiation therapy is a local treatment, which means it treats a specific part of your body. For example, if you have cancer in your lung, you will have radiation only to your chest, not to your whole body.

Radiation therapy does not kill cancer cells right away. It takes days or weeks of treatment before DNA is damaged enough for cancer cells to die. Then, cancer cells keep dying for weeks or months after radiation therapy ends.Radiation therapy is used to treat cancer and ease cancer symptoms. When used to treat cancer, radiation therapy can cure cancer, prevent it from returning, or stop or slow its growth. For some people, radiation may be the only treatment you need. But, most often, you will have radiation therapy with other cancer treatments, such as surgery, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy. Radiation therapy may be given before, during, or after these other treatments to improve the chances that treatment will work. The timing of when radiation therapy is given depends on the type of cancer being treated and whether the goal of radiation therapy is to treat the cancer or ease symptoms.

When treatments are used to ease symptoms, they are known as palliative treatments. External beam radiation may shrink tumors to treat pain and other problems caused by the tumor, such as trouble breathing or loss of bowel and bladder control. Pain from cancer that has spread to the bone can be treated with systemic radiation therapy drugs called radiopharmaceuticals.

Chemo kit for cancer patient

The perfect gift

A chemo care kit is perfect when thinking of gifts for cancer patients, which is exactly why chemo kits were created. Chemo kits was created by Jessica, a stage 4 cancer survivor who knows exactly the perfect gifts for cancer patients and what exactly needs to be in a chemo care kit. Jessica was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2016 after going misdiagnosed for many years. With an unfavorable prognosis and almost one year of salvage chemotherapy and radiation, Jessica finally reached remission. She considers this her “second chance” at life, and wants to give back as much as she can, which is why she created Chemo Kits.

What includes a perfect chemo care kit?

Cancer Care Packages

The perfect chemo care kit includes all of the essentials that a cancer patient will need while going through treatment. Designed by Jessica DeCristofaro, a Stage 4 cancer survivor and the “Lymphoma Barbie” blogger herself, these chemo kits were originally tested at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center in Miami with patients going through chemotherapy and sent to other cancer centers throughout the country, and even in Europe! The feedback of the chemo kits was so positive, that she felt it should be shared. Jessica has worked in the Dermatology field for over 7 years, so making patients feel better about themselves is her passion. Motivational writing and speaking is another one of her passions, as she blogged her entire way through her cancer diagnosis, treatment, and even post cancer life. Jessica wants cancer patients that are going through chemo to still be able to feel beautiful, even if they are going through intensive Chemotherapy. These Chemo Kits also include inspirational items that Jessica felt boosted her mood during chemo, so she wants to return the favor that she received during her treatment. It’s also tough having a friend or family member diagnosed with cancer. People often don’t know what to get them, and result in just sending flowers—which most cancer patients are not even allowed to have while they are going through chemotherapy. We can’t take away the pain and trauma that cancer causes, but we can sure offer support and smiles, through these chemo kits! Jessica is also the author of a popular Cancer 101 book entitled “Talk Cancer to Me: My Guide to Kicking Cancer’s Booty”. It is available at Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and now can be added to your Chemo Kit! This chemo care kit includes a turban which is one of the top gifts for cancer patients, inspirational notebooks, key chains, necklaces, lip balm, and so much more which make the perfect chemo care kit. Chemo kits was founded by a cancer survivor that too often received flowers at her hospital, which she had to throw out for health reasons. She found that no one knew exactly what good and acceptable gifts for cancer patients were, so she curated a chemo care kit that includes all of the essentials that she liked while going through treatment. Chemo kits can be purchased as gifts for cancer patients that you know or we can also send an anonymous chemo care kit to a patient in need through our registry. A chemo care kit is the perfect pick me up for anyone that has been diagnosed with cancer. Gifts for cancer patients are easy with a chemo kit. What is an appropriate gift to get someone that has recently been diagnosed with cancer or is currently receiving treatment? Chemo gifts for cancer patients often include flowers and you don’t want to send flowers because they end up getting thrown away. In fact, most cancer centers don’t allow flowers in patient’s rooms. Cancer patients undergoing treatment are usually neutropenic, and would prefer a chemo kit over flowers. Flowers also say “I’m sorry”, and the last thing that a cancer patient wants is someone to feel sorry for them. Flowers also pose a huge risk for infection amongst cancer patients. Neutropenia is an abnormally low concentration of neutrophils (a type of white blood cell) in the blood.[4] Neutrophils make up the majority of circulating white blood cells and serve as the primary defense against infections by destroying bacteria, bacterial fragments and immunoglobulin-bound viruses in the blood.[5] People with neutropenia are more susceptible to bacterial infections and, without prompt medical attention, the condition may become life-threatening (neutropenic sepsis).[6]

Neutropenia can be divided into congenital and acquired, with severe congenital neutropenia (SCN) and cyclic neutropenia (CyN) being autosomal dominant and mostly caused by heterozygous mutations in the ELANE gene (neutrophil elastase).[7] Neutropenia can be acute (temporary) or chronic (long lasting). The term is sometimes used interchangeably with “leukopenia” (“deficit in the number of white blood cells”).[8]

Decreased production of neutrophils is associated with deficiencies of vitamin B12 and folic acid, aplastic anemia, tumors, drugs, metabolic disease, nutritional deficiency and immune mechanisms. In general, the most common oral manifestations of neutropenia include ulcer, gingivitis, and periodontitis. Agranulocytosis can be presented as whitish or greyish necrotic ulcer in oral cavity, without any sign of inflammation. Acquired agranulocytosis is much more common than congenital form. The common causes of acquired agranulocytosis including drugs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, antiepileptics, antithyroid and antibiotics) and viral infection. Agranulocytosis has a mortality rate of 7–10%. To manage this, the application of granulocyte colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) or granulocyte transfusion and the use of broad spectrum antibiotics to protect bacterial infections are recommended.Gifts for cancer patients doesn’t have to be that difficult, which is why Chemo Kits was founded. Created by a stage four cancer survivor, the pick-me-up products in a chemo kit are bound to instantly brighten a patient’s day, and make them feel a little less alone. When people think of gifts for chemo patients, those familiar with the brand immediately think of chemo kits. Chemo Kits just launched a new “Chic Chemo Kit”, targeted for women who don’t want to lose their femininity. The most popular item in the kit so far is the chic head wrap, so that when the patient ends up losing her hair, she can immediately have a chic, trendy, head wrap on deck, that’s already tied, because tying the head wraps can be confusing. The kit also comes with a pill container for the patient to hold their pills, lip balm when their lips become dry from chemotherapy, a do it yourself popsicle maker, and a cute pen and notebook for journaling. The kit also comes with an inspirational card from the founder that gives the recipient hope, when she shares her personal battle with cancer. We hope that you enjoy our chemo kits!
