For so many of us, the month of October gets us thinking about the cooler weather, pumpkin picking and the start of football season (and yes, tailgating) but October also has many of us thinking about breast cancer and those loved ones affected by other cancers. Unfortunately cancer, no matter the form, has affected so many of us here at Lilly, as it has our customers, including one of our Charlotte customers, Kaylee.
Well last February, as we were preparing to open the doors of our Charlotte, NC store, we met some very excited Lilly Lovers from Charlotte Smarty Pants. We gave these lovely ladies a sneak peek at the store before it opened and had them join us for our Grand Opening event. We knew this was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
A few months later we got a call from Jen Plym, one of the ladies from the Smarty crew, to ask us if we’d be willing to help her out with a really important project. We were all ears. Jen explained that one of their dear friends & Smarty Pants team members, Kaylee, was about to begin chemotherapy to fight her battle with Hodgkin Lymphoma. Jen wanted to know if we could help the Smarty Moms show their support for Kaylee with a donation of our Murfee scarves. Our answer? Duh! Of course we would! Click here to find out how the Charlotte ladies used our scarves to show their love & support for Kaylee. BE WARNED: it’s a tear jerker.
Well the focus of the month got us thinking about Kaylee & we wanted to share some exciting news with you. Just last week, Kaylee was given the all clear from her doctor!! We are so excited for her. Comment below and share your congrats with Kaylee or anyone else you know who has kicked cancer’s butt!
Thanks to Brooke Brown Photography for sharing her amazing pictures with us.
