Top 10 Products for Cancer Patients

Blog Post August 4, 2017

While fighting cancer means undergoing treatment, like chemotherapy, it’s important to remember the smaller day-to-day care – 1 in 5 cancer deaths are a result of malnutrition, infections, and injuries from falls.

Below we have rounded up the top 10 most requested care supplies at CareBOX Program. These are products that every patient may need to help fight malnutrition, infections, or injuries while fighting cancer.


  • Orgain Nutrition

Nourishment is vital for cancer patients, and our number one most requested item for a good reason. This product is quite versatile – Orgain comes in multiple flavors, and you can drink this product alone or mix it into drinks and smoothies.


  • Hand sanitizer
  • Oral thermometer
  • Disinfectant wipes
  • Baby or hygiene wipes

Some types of cancers and cancer treatment can weaken your immune system, which increases your risk of getting an infection. It’s important to keep these items ready on hand, and be aware of the signs and symptoms of infection.


  • Walker (with a seat)
  • Shower chair

With cancer, some days are better than others. Mobility care supplies can help greatly with preventing fatigue and tiredness throughout the day.


  • Neck pillow
  • Lotion
  • Bed wedge

While preventing malnutrition, infection, and injuries from falls are the biggest priority, you may need care supplies to help with your comfort and other needs. A neck pillow can bring you comfort during doctor visits, while a bed wedge allows you to move from a sleeping to sitting position in bed.

No matter what your needs are, CareBOX Program allows every patient to customize and receive the care supplies they need. With over forty different products to choose from, we aim to protect our patients from malnutrition, infections, and injuries from falls.
