Tell us about Not Alone
Not alone gifts offers a range of beautifully packaged hampers that are perfect for those undergoing treatment for cancer or those in remission
For patients pre and post surgery or just as a pick me up general gift
What´s your story?
Living in the región for 28yrs Dubai is my home so In 2014 when i was diagnosed with breast cancer i decided to remain here for my treatment, with the support network of my friends and family and excellent medical facilities
At what point you thought about starting Not Alone?
During my year of treatment I was very lucky to receive wonderful gifts from family and friends mainly bouquets of flowers and other gifts that sadly I was unable to use because of my treatment.
My friends later admitted that they had desperately wanted to send something to show they cared, but didn’t know what. This inspired me to handpick a selection of gifts that are thoughtful, practical and useful, package them beautifully and offer them as an alternative to flowers.
What kind of products can we find inside of a Not Alone´s box?
For friends and family of cancer patients it can be a daunting time to know what the patient really needs.
Hospital shops have a limited choice of gift options, they do not deviate /diversify from Pink & Blue balloons, Arabic sweets, Chocolates and flowers. At Not Alone our goal is to offer thoughtful gifts for cancer patients. Currently I offer a range of ready made hampers for men women and children

There are a number of major side effects that many women with breast cancer experience when undergoing chemotherapy treatment.
These include, but aren’t limited to:
Fatigue, Nausea, sensitivity to smells, dry skin, brittle discolored nails, mouth sores,

How do you choose the products inside of each box?
At the beginning of my journey I didn’t know what I would need however after my own experience and meeting other patients I learnt what items would make our journey easier.
I didn’t want to include any clinical ítems, just pretty, useful, practical uplifting gifts that are free of nasties such as Parabens, SLS and aluminium.
The range of Healing Hampers offers not only physical but emotional support to any patient, showing them that you understand.
Why the green color?
