Where Are The Donations Going? LLS

Where Are The Donations Going? LLS

What does LLS stand for?

Do you know what LLS stands for? LLS stands for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Our company takes skincare very seriously. I, the owner of The Smelly Panda Soap Company, have a rare form of lymphoma. Although it is a blood cancer, it shows up on my skin, so I basically have 2 types of cancer. Going through this experience has shown me that what goes ONTO our bodies is equally as important as what goes INTO our bodies. Using quality, natural skincare is the beginning to healthy, radiant skin. Protecting your skin from too much sun is another important step. Using natural sunscreen to protect from melanoma is crucial is having healthy skin. 

When I was going through my surgeries, radiation, chemo, long trips for treatments, and finally a bone marrow transplant, I spent a lot of time thinking about how I could give back. What is important to me? I decided I want to offer people quality, natural products. That are safe for the environment. No BS, hidden ingredients or agendas. I wanted a brand I know my family can trust and uses. Skincare essentially begins in the shower. So, we became a soap company. An eco friendly self care company. That's just the beginning of what we want to do as a company. Leukemia and Lymphoma Society has given me another chance to make a difference. 

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society helps cancer patients and their families deal with the stress and burden this type of diagnosis carries. As a patient, sitting in the chair, listening to the news. I have a rare subtype of a rare cancer that I will have the rest of my life. I'm thinking (I was 45 at the time) "I still have a long way to go". It was a surreal moment for me. It began a rigorous journey of appointments and meeting people, so many  people. I couldn't keep up with everything. LLS was there. They helped us with gas to get to my appointments, getting work done on our vehicle to ensure we could make it to the appointments an hour away, and hotel stays for me and my husband when my appointments were 3 hours away. We were also able to pay some bills we had fallen behind on. They helped us through some tough times. They saved us. The medical advances this foundation creates saves lives. Like mine. My cancer is aggressive, once it appears. If it weren't for the blessing of this foundation, I don't know what we would have done. If you, or a loved one is going through a lymphoma diagnosis, please look into what LLS can help you with. Having people that have gone through, are going through, and have experience with patients during this time is a relief I can't even describe. 

We are giving a percentage of sales to support The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Knowing firsthand the donations are going towards making people's lives easier during a life changing diagnosis. No one ever expects to hear "You have cancer". Having people support you during these times with encouragement, ease of financial burden, and understanding support is a true blessing. One that we will always support.
