Offering more than 300 specialty items, with many products inspired and developed by cancer patients and survivors, each item is reviewed and endorsed by a physician to make sure the product is safe for all patients. As an example, one of the newest cancer products on the market, both inspired and developed by a cancer patient is The SHOWER SHIRT. A Class 1 Medical Device, the product is the first and only anti-microbial, water-resistant garment to protect mastectomy patients while showering, and before the surgical drains are removed. "It’s important that mastectomy drain sites don’t get wet post-surgery," said Dr. Bone. "Taking a shower without protecting the drain sites can be problematic as water is laden with bacteria which in turn can cause infection to the patient. The Shower Shirt is a great product to protect breast cancer patients from water intrusion to the surgical sites."
Cancer Shop USA also provides a myriad of clinical information on care giving tips and inspirational quotes from survivors, basically a ‘go to’ resource for many cancer-related questions.
"We want consumers to know that a lot of research and clinical knowledge has gone into creating this site to help cancer patients, both from a personal, as well as a professional perspective," added Dr. Bone.
A portion of the sales from Cancer Shop USA is donated to The Cancer Sensibility Foundation, whose mission is: To encourage a sensible approach to cancer and promote a new perception of the disease as treatable and often curable; and also to educate the public about cancer etiquette and provide support to cancer patients, families, and friends.
