Care Packages for Cancer Survivors

Type: 
Web site
Description: 

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.

Everything's Okay

Type: 
Book
Description: 

When Alesia Shute was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 7, her life was redirected as was that of her entire family. She would go on to survive six major surgeries that had never been tested on a child, several minor surgeries and countless hours of pain and months of hospitalization. Alesia had to grow up quickly and adjust to being sickly and different from others. Everything is Okay is her story of survival that details not only her recovery, but also her struggles through school, boys, marriage, and pregnancy, with some hilarious tales of business to boot.
