TREATMiNT offers monthly gift box for cancer patients

Kimberly Fink started the company after her own battle with cancer.

Kimberly Fink was 32 when she was diagnosed with uterine cancer.

After surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, Fink went into remission and had a new goal: to improve the experience of other cancer patients. That’s the idea behind TREATMiNT Box, a monthly subscription box full of gifts for cancer patients, survivors and caregivers.

Fink, now 35, of East Falls, said she created TREATMiNT because she noticed that people felt like they didn’t know how to support loved ones battling cancer.

The boxes, which start at $50 for one month and get cheaper if you buy a longer subscription, include products like hand cream and an art print with an inspirational quote in it.

Fink recently spoke about TREATMiNT at coworking space Walnut St. Labs.

The revenue model, Fink said, is three-fold:

  • The subscription boxes,
  • individual products (including wholesale, which has not launched yet) and
  • co-branding boxes for hospitals, nonprofits and other organizations.

Fink declined to disclose revenue numbers. She’s the only one working full-time on the project and is currently raising a round of funding. She’ll also be heading to tech conference Web Summit Dublin as part of its “Alpha” startup program next month.

The product has gotten early buzz from Philadelphia Magazine, landing a spot on its “Best of Philly” list.
