Sydney, Australia, February 05, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Breastcancer4partners.com is releasing their research results of what women with breast cancer want for Valentines Day.
Traditional Valentine’s Day gifts can be challenging for men with breast cancer partners. Their wives might not feel like celebrating in a restaurant, they shouldn’t have flowers during chemotherapy, and perfumes can be overwhelming.
Breastcancer4partners.com has found that women want to feel loved, sexy and to forget about their breast cancer even if just for a moment.
The mission for a man whose partner has breast cancer is to distract her from her breast cancer long enough to know that she is loved in a romantic and endless way.
Here are the 7 most wanted gifts for a breast cancer Valentines:
1. Help her feel rested. Hire a cleaner, or do it yourself, but give your home a very good clean.
2. Help her feel loved. Write a letter to her that tells her how much you have appreciated her over time, and how much you are looking forward to sharing your lives together.
3. Help her feel glamorous. If she's having surgery, have someone come to do her nails. If she's in chemo, get her a new scarf that can be worn around the head now and around the shoulders later. If she's doing radiation, an intense body skin cream to moisturize and nourish.
4. Help her feel beautiful. Tell her that she's beautiful. Tell her that her scars don't matter. Touch the scars. Buy her some jewellery that suits her face, her eyes. Tip: don't buy Pink Ribbon cancer earrings - this won't help her forget the cancer for even a moment.
5. Help her feel sexy. Buy her mastectomy lingerie. Make love to her. Know the boundaries, and depending on where she is on her breast cancer journey, be careful of drains, swelling and feelings of nausea.
6. Help her feel nourished. Cook a special meal at home that's made with love. Be considerate of how much and what her appetite can tolerate.
7. Help her imagine and celebrate your future together. Buy a scrapbook, and paste pictures of exotic destinations that you'd like to travel together. Or family that you'd like to visit. Or a picture of your dream family home.
