Here is my story! Every time I go to the cancer center for my chemo treatments, it breaks my heart. There are people of all ages, all stages of cancer and I want to be able to give some ray of hope to each of them. I decided to make Chemo Care Packages! Each bag, handmade or embroidered with the "Making Lemonade" logo will have the following: JR Watkins Natural Lotion, for dry chemo skin, A box of ginger tea for upset tummies, 'Lemons of Love' reusable water bottle, bag of Acai blueberries covered in chocolate - because cancer hates blueberries and we all crave chocolate, bag of lemon drops and a bottle of spring water!! Each bag also needs a pair of Superman or Supergirl socks, plus a Happy Picture (drawn by a child)!! Some bags will also receive some jewelry (donated by a friend), a handknit hat (made specifically for Lemons of Love), handmade cards, Lemons of Love Fighter bracelet, or other happy donations that come in!!
I funded the first 30 with a little help from my friends (making bags, embroidering, graphic designing for the cards enclosed, donations of hand made jewelry, happy drawings, and other fun stuff), now I have decided to continue the project since I am feeling better.
Thanks for your support, I promise to post photos on Facebook and continue to give back as long as I am on this earth!
Love you guys!
