We have partnered with Retreat Candle Co. to bring you the small candle with a big story.
The Lemonade Candle smells like sweet lemonade on a hot summer day and is also made with all-natural wax, phthalate-free fragrances, a crackling wooden wick, and it’s vegan! Each purchase comes with a seed-paper bookmark to plant in your empty candle jar afterwards. Proceeds from every candle go towards Lemonade Standemonium and the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation.
The beautiful candle label was designed by 8 year-old Brianna.
Brianna was diagnosed at eighteen months of age with Stage 4 High Risk Neuroblastoma. Her tumor is the size of a grapefruit and is still sitting on her left kidney, it is also wrapped around her adrenal arteries and aorta. Brianna went through chemotherapy, radiation, a stem cell transplant in Montreal, retinoic acid treatments, surgeries and had an NG tube feeding her for close to four years. Brianna continues to take three different blood pressure medications twice a day, the tumour wrapping around her renal arteries causes her high blood pressure.
Even during Brianna’s cancer journey she remains positive and told us: “Cancer is yucky, like lemons, but sometimes good things come out of yucky experiences. Always find the good, there is always love hiding somewhere.” 🙂
