Raise The Gong's Chemo Care Kits come in a purple overnight bag, and are filled with a range of products designed to support women who are entering into chemotherapy. They are being distributed free of charge to local women entering into chemotherapy treatment for the first time in the Illawarra, with around 600 kits given out each year.
Each kit contains: full sized and sample beauty and health care products, such as Biotene and MooGoo; hand-made woollen socks or beanies from our volunteer knitters; food and health samples; puzzle books; a pillowcase; pill-box; mini wheat bag; and much more.
The kits also include a booklet of discount vouchers from local businesses providing special offers for women receiving the kits. Brochures and information about products, and general information about chemotherapy are also included. Each kit is valued at over $180.00.
Please note, due to donations and funding, kits may be slightly different from time to time, but we promise, they'll still be great!
Chemo Care Kits
A huge thank you to our kit sponsors:
Knit for our kits!
We are always seeking donations of knitted booties or bed socks for our Toasty Tootsies program, and will happily accept beanies and scarves too!
Please note, as much as we would like to support all women, our kits are only available to women of the Illawarra region entering into chemotherapy for the first time.
