Michael's Journey

Type: 
Book
Description: 

Michael's Journey is a book I just published. It is my diary of the past five years of my son, Michael's, recovery from brain cancer. Michael was 13 when he got suddenly ill and is now 18 and has been five years cancer free. Even though Michael walks with a walker now, that doesn't stop his drive for life. He is an inspiration to everyone he meets. This book was written to inspire other families.

When I was going through cancer treatment I had a difficult time locating products that were safe, scent-free, chemical-free and considered to support health not burden the body with petroleum or other harmful ingredients. I created Kare 'n Totes to offer products that are safe,nurturing and effective. Having a care package already assembled with products save others valuable time while going through treatment. I invite you to check out the website at www.karentotes.com. It has gift care packages designed for the cancer survivor in mind. The items in each tote have been carefully evaluated and selected by a cancer survivors. Products are safe, chemical free and useful for managing the daily symptoms that often occur while going through cancer treatment.
