Katie Kits being used, 143 Miles & $1200, and a Fall Bonfire

First off, wanted to let you know that we got word back from one woman, Nancy, who just LOVES her Katie Kit.  As Katie herself fine-tuned what things helped her get through radiation treatment, Nancy is very appreciative of all the items.  The vanilla fragrance roll-on works wonderfully to calm her, for even a self-described ...
