Please note: Since we are offering Power Up Packs for sale for the first time, and because we have no way of measuring initial demand, please be advised that the shipment of purchased packs may be delayed by a few weeks. Unfortunately, we cannot provide an exact shipping time once we deplete our initial on-hand stock, but be assured we will work diligently to ship purchased packs to our customers as soon as possible.
These kits consist of tote bags filled with necessities and personal comfort items. When you purchase a Power Up Pack for $60, another Power Up Pack is given to a patient battling cancer, free of charge. (Thumbs Up, Cancer Down will work with medical centers to determine which patients will receive free packs.)
These packs are intended to provide comfort to people faced with long cancer treatments. Each bag is stuffed with a blanket, beanie, hand sanitizer, battery backup phone charger, journal, and thumbs-up pen. Most cancer treatment centers are somewhat chilly, so the blanket will provide warmth. Patients receiving chemotherapy often lose their hair, so a beanie will not only keep their heads warm, but also boost self-esteem for those struggling with hair loss. Cancer patients typically experience weakened immune systems during treatment, so hand sanitizer will help ward off bacteria and prevent illnesses. Patients receiving treatment often have to share a limited number of outlets to power their electronics. With battery backup phone chargers, patients can charge their devices from their seats and do not have to worry about finding nearby outlets. And lastly, the pen and journal are provided so patients can track their personal paths of healing. Patients can also draw or play games in the journals.
Whether you’re purchasing this pack as a cancer patient, for a cancer patient, or just because you like the items and want to support Thumbs Up, Cancer Down, you can feel great knowing that your purchase funds another pack for someone in need.
