Practical gifts to help you stay well

Hand & Nail Gift Hamper


Hand and nails are greatly affected during cancer treatment as chemotherapy can blister the skin and damage the nerves in the hands and feet which become very dry, sore and may cause the nails to fall off completely.  

Unfortunately I lost all my nails during my treatment but luckily they are slowly coming back. It is vital to keep the skin and nails nourished and I strongly urge people to take extra care with their hands and feet and keep them moisturised.

Essence Diamond nail file - with diamond powder dust - to shape your nails perfectly. Extremely durable.

Orly Cuticle Care Complex 18 ml - Contains vitamins A & E to fight free radicals combined with aloe, papaya and pineapple to soothe, nourish and treat the nails and promotes nail growth.

Essie Canyon Coral13.5ml -  Essie's Chip-Resistant Formula, outstanding durability. Some chemotherapy drugs make your finger and toe nails go brown if they are exposed to the light. Painting your nails with a dark nail polish will protect them.  This colour is fabulous and would look good on any woman’s nails.
