Soul-Soothing Stories

Soul-Soothing Stories of Cancer Survivors is a compelling book inspired by hundreds of people we’ve met over the years who have shared their inspirational stories of faith, bravery and love. The stories lovingly shared in this book are intended to be a source of light and hope for you or someone else you care about.

For years, I received personal testimonials from customers who used our natural skincare products. They raved about how much better their skin looked and felt after applying our crèmes, balms and body butters. Word spread quickly as consultants shared these powerful testimonials at their spa parties and on social media. One day I received an email from a clever sales consultant with the suggestion that we package three items together to be able to give to cancer patients. So, in 2013 we began offering our Cancer Care Set, which was eventually renamed the Loving Care Gift Set. Organic Skin & Nail Balm in a Tube, Healing Elements and Ultra Hydrating Body Crème became the magical trio in the pink or gray organza bag. Hundreds of them were ordered that year and story after story flooded our inboxes.

In 2014, in honor of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I decided that our corporate office would expand this program by sending Loving Care Gift Sets, free of charge, to anyone diagnosed with any type of cancer. The only prerequisite was that the recipient be nominated for the gift set by a loved one. Eloquently written nomination letters poured in and patients with tear-filled eyes gratefully accepted the gift that had arrived on their doorstep. Each package included a card to let them know that someone special had requested it on their behalf.

We continued the initiative each year and the numbers multiplied; hundreds of our customers took the time to nominate that special someone. Whether it was for a mother with breast cancer, a daughter with melanoma, a father with prostate cancer, a son with lymphoma or husband diagnosed with a brain tumor, these complimentary gifts helped thousands of deserving people. Our Facebook feed was filled with these heartfelt stories of gratitude and our home office team rejoiced in the success of the program. “We are truly a company with a heart” our sales leaders remarked.

The stories contained in this book are from customers and consultants who have walked a cancer journey. “Because of Lemongrass Spa, I am able to share my story and help educate others every single day,” said Heather P. Miller, a Senior Director with the company. Heather is breast cancer survivor, a military wife and mom of a teenage son.
