What started with a small gift between friends has now evolved into the larger “gift of humanity.” Lemons of Love was started in 2014 after the founder, Jill Swanson Peltier, was diagnosed with Stage III Colon Cancer. Jill had received a small goodie bag from a friend with a few items that were meant to help her through her chemotherapy treatment. Touched by the kindness and thoughtfulness of this gift, she knew that this was something that everyone starting their battle with cancer should receive. Jill envisioned being able to give others the same support that she received, in the form of a simple gift that makes a big impact.
