My best friend is about to start chemo for leukaemia. Can anyone advise a useful gift whilst she is in hospital. Just want to make it a little easier for her if I can 

  • Hello Pamster and thank you for contacting the online community.

    I’m sorry to hear your best friend’s about to start chemotherapy for leukaemia, it’s a nice thought to send her something to cheer her up.

    You can find some suitable gift ideas at Not Another Bunch of Flowers as well as the Macmillan Online Shop. There are also a lot of good ideas online if you want to Google something like ‘ideas for chemotherapy gifts’.

    How are you just now Pamster? It’s not easy seeing someone you’re close to go through something like cancer, do you have people to support you?

    We’re here if it helps to talk and we also have nurses here if you have any clinical questions you’d like to ask about your friend’s diagnosis or treatment.

    Take care.
