Chemo Comfort kits help to make the treatment experience easier by giving patients the tools to cope with day-to-day needs from the beginning. A patient can start out with the right toothpaste and a comfy sleep cap and not spend time and effort investigating what is needed. Kits provide cancer patients with products that help manage nausea, mouth sores and hair loss, among other things.

Chemo Comfort has a three-tiered program to distribute kits to cancer patients. Kits are donated through partnering cancer organizations; subsidized kits are available to cancer patients nationwide for a minimal donation; and there is a gift kit program, enabling you to help someone you know going through treatment. Over 70% of last year’s kits were donated.

Chemo Comfort works with cancer organizations that assist those who are economically disadvantaged to distribute our donated kits. We are proud to be partnering with the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program, CancerCare, Cancer Support Team, Charles B Wang Community Health Center, Richmond University Medical Center, Staten Island University Hospital, St. John's Riverside Hospital, and the Phyllis Newman Women's Health Initiative at the Actors' Fund.
