Cervical Screening Awareness Week which runs from 15th to 20th June aims to encourage all women to have regular cervical screening as well as to provide information and reassurance around any fears or embarrassment that women may have concerning taking the test.
But what do you get someone who already has cervical cancer? Getting someone a gift when they have cancer can be tricky. Picture of Cervical Cancer Super Hero Mug
When choosing gifts for cancer patients it is important to take into account how a cancer patient is affected by both the illness and the treatment. For example, your gift ideas need to take into account any physical changes your friend might experience, as follows
*Skin sensitivity and dryness
*Changes in smell and taste
*Change in appetite and dietary restrictions
*Compromised immune system
But it doesn't have to be difficult to choose a thoughtful cancer gift, but when choosing you would need to, where possible
1.Think about the person you are buying the gift for
2. Understand the emotional and physical effects of their cancer and their treatments
