Get Better Soon, N

By Pinksherbert on Flickr

We got a heart wrenching email yesterday from a mother who's daughter has thyroid cancer. They live in the heartland of America. This mom basically explained that her daughter, while waiting for her first Radiation Treatment, wanted some ice cream. Several families there at the hospital --whose sons and daughters had thyroid cancer--suggested our Coconut Bliss as a great alternative. Luna & Larry's Coconut Bliss is organic coconut milk based ice cream, so it's easier on their stomachs (and when you're going through cancer treatments, you need life to be as easy as possible). 

Anyway, there were no stores close by that sold our "Bliss". The mom asked us to find some...so we got on the phone/computer, contacted some stores, and three stores close to her hospital jumped up and ordered our Coconut Bliss ice cream! On behalf of the little girl and her mom, our team here wanted to say thanks to all you cool stores for responding so quickly. We all hope she gets better soon...and that this little bit of "Bliss" helps.

Here are the stores and the people who made the decisions to bring it in: if you live in Kansas, please patronize these guys/gals--they rock!

  • Becky at Prairie Harvest (Newton, Kansas 601 N Main St , 316-283-6623) ,  brought in some Dark Chocolate bars and Vanilla Island. Thank you!
  • Melinda at Food for Thought (2929 E Central, Wichita, KS, 316-683-6078), brought in a bunch of flavors (arriving this Thursday I believe). Thank you!
  • Matt at Green Acres (316-634-1088, 8141 E 21st St, Wichita, Kansas) also brought in a sample case of Naked Coconut flavor...Matt should have it in a week or so. Thank you!
