Gift a super survivor kit
We offer Super Survivor Kits to women going through active breast cancer treatment. The kits include comfort items to help women during a difficult time.
While we gift women going through active breast cancer in Arizona a free kit, we have decided to make our kits available to women all over the U.S. You may purchase a Super Survivor Kit to gift to your Super Survivor outside of Arizona, as well as anyone who you think could use one of our kits.
About our Super Survivor Kits
Each kit is made with love, community support, and generosity! The kit contains many handmade, clean, non-toxic products like: aromatherapy candles, lip gloss, hand cream, exfoliating soap, bath salts, laundry detergent, lavender infused eye masks and hot/cold pads. We even include the minimal ingredient recipes with simple, easy instructions so women can make more of the products when they run out!
Also included is a reading book (either inspiring breast cancer or healing books), a product from the company Lush, coloring & game books, colored pencils, fuzzy socks, a blanket, a head cap and a hand written card. We usually include one more item, we get donations throughout the year that we are able to add into our kits, for example we are currently adding a free bra and bra fitting with a specialist, into all of our women recipient kits.
Special thank you to our very own Laura Pentsa and Girl Scout Troop #7286 for making our non-toxic products and leaving a legacy of health!
As we planned the Super Survivor Kits, we realized this was an amazing opportunity for our community to shine and use their talents to express their care. Our programs director, Laura began teaching her daughter’s girl scout troop the recipes. The girls loved the project and learning why non-toxic ingredients are so important. In just one night their troop made over 100 individual containers of homemade laundry detergent for the kits! The girls were overjoyed with their accomplishment and are continuing to learn more recipes to fill the kits! Our wonderful NCL volunteers have been making beautiful lavender infused eye masks. A local church, heard about the new program and within the week had bags of blankets made and ready to bring a bit of comfort. One woman heard the need and immediately left to buy fabric for the hot/cold packs.
So! What has this revealed to us? People care! People want to show their support! People have many talents! And this Super Survivor Kit can be a way for all of them to collaborate with us and show each survivor that the community is there cheering them on and caring! We care about YOU!
