Please Help! I am helping my sister-in-law's cousin, Brian, who has Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Starting today, Saturday, May 2, 2015 until Wednesday, May 13, 2015, a portion of my sales will go to help with Brian's medical costs. For those of you in or near Altoona, Pa, please select that option for Shipping, as I will be bringing the items to Bethany on May 16. Here is Brian's story:

Brian Keiser, a 42 year old from Altoona, PA, is currently undergoing treatment for Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He was diagnosed in February 2013. Since then, he has undergone a 12 week stent of chemotherapy, that was unsuccessful, and was followed by a stem cell transplant in Spring 2014. A few months later, the cancer was still present and doctors did another round of chemotherapy which again was not successful. Doctors then wanted to do a second stem cell transplant from a donor, however on December 22nd 2014, before he was able to receive treatment, he developed pneumonia and spent 5 weeks in the ICU in Pittsburgh. The good news is at his last appointment, doctors reported his scans are clear of cancer! Praise the Lord! But, as you can imagine, the mounding medical bills have piled up over 2 years worth of appointments and treatment. Brian has tried to work as much as possible through out his treatment, and luckily his employer has been quite understanding! If anyone deserves a little help it is him, so please support him and his wife by making a purchase that could not only give you something but help someone in need as well!

"I have used various soaps from Cedarwood and have loved them all. In particular, I like the triple butter unscented soap. I use it especially during winter which in Minnesota is sometimes harsh and very drying. I no longer need to keep replenishing lotion as I used to in winter. Thank you so much Karen."

The products and creativity have always been a hit for the recipient of the gifts. Karen puts her heart into her work and is eager to explain the benefits of using the products she makes.  I would recommend Karen and her products to anyone."
