HaH joins forces with Treatment Bag charity

13th August 2018

We’re excited to announce a new partnership between Healthcare at Home and the Treatment Bag charity.

Treatment Bag was started in December 2017 by two friends, Maymie White and Lisa Dennis, who had both been touched by cancer and the journey that chemo and radiotherapy patients find themselves reluctantly on.

The charity supplies chemotherapy patients with a bag of treats, which Maymie describes as “a hug in a bag, aimed to lift an otherwise dark day.”

Together Maymie and Lisa researched what chemotherapy patients really value during, and following, their treatment. The most cherished products were skin and mouth care as well as products to keep warm and treats to avoid having to face the cooker!

The charity, entirely run by volunteers who help research, wrap and pack the bags, is now supported by some of the UK’s top companies including Aesop, This Works, Emma Bridgwater, Green & Blacks and Cowshed.

HaH is delighted to announce that, from Autumn 2018, Treatment Bags will be given to all new ‘chemotherapy at home’ patients in the South West, with the aim of expanding to more HaH chemo patients later in 2019.

Maymie shared “The whole Treatment Bag team are thrilled to be working with Healthcare at Home who have supported my chemotherapy treatment for the last two years. As the largest provider of chemotherapy treatment in the home, it’s a fantastic opportunity to spread the word about Treatment Bag and to know that even more patients will benefit from the generosity of our donors.”

Further details of the charity can be found at their website www.treatmentbag.co.uk.
