September is Lymphoma Awareness month and we want to help advance research funding and support patients. 10% of sales of this candle will go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Please help us raise the funds to make a difference. We will match the amount sold during the month of September 2020. You can also donate directly to the society here. Please read our story below to learn more on why we support this cause.
For this candle we have chosen the luscious Coconut Lime fragrance to match the lime green colors of Lymphoma.
This fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils, including lime and orange.

Currently my son-in-law Nic started feeling unwell shortly after his wedding to my daughter Victoria last summer. He thought it was his busy work schedule along with actively competing in Curling. As his symptoms got worse and finally to the point where he needed to seek medical assistance, we were astonished that at age 29 Nic had Lymphoma or specifically Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma and the rare Grey Zone Lymphoma. He has been in treatment since May/June 2020. He is doing well and is on his second to last chemo. We will have an update on where we stand when he gets his next scan in October.
Cancer patients like Nic have to endure 5 day inpatient chemo rounds which is not only hard on the patient being away from family, but hard on the family who want to be near their loved one. That is why we want to help raise funds to support families and for research to end this disease.
Coincidentally enough, my mom was diagnosed with the same cancer as Nic - Large B Cell Lymphoma in 2011. My mom didn't make it and has never met Nic, but I am sure if she did get to meet him she would love him like we all do.
