On this 101st edition of the Arlington Prospect Advice Givers Podcast, Jill Peltier of Lemons of Love is our guest. Jill has been turning lemons into lemonade for cancer patients going through the rigors of chemotherapy treatments. A cancer survivor herself, Jill has been helping chemo patients stay positive with her care packages of love since 2014.
When Jill Peltier found out she had stage three colon cancer, she was taken by surprise. There were no symptoms other than a cough. Life changed quickly for the successful entrepreneur. Running her auto racing business, Fresh Air Systems Technology, took a back seat to Jill’s health in 2014. However, what came of her setback birthed the concept Lemons of Love. After receiving a care package, while receiving treatment, Jill felt she could make a positive Impact on chemotherapy patients everywhere. That’s when she started handing out care packages to others. Each smile on a fellow patients face, inspired Jill to set out on her amazing journey.
Jill and all of those who have joined her on this journey, are inspiring chemo patients to stay positive with their chemo care packages every day. In the interview you get to find out what’s inside these packages of love and the positive effect they are having on patients. You may even know someone who is in the battle of their lives right now. If you do, reaching out to Lemons of Love is something you may want to do.
Jill Peltier’s inspiring journey started with her blogging to her racing family. Sharing the stories of her chemo treatments she was able to build a loyal following. Jill shared her struggles. Her thoughts. Her willingness to let people ride in the front seat with her battle, rallied many of her friends and family in the racing community to support her mission. I hope you get involved with this amazing grass roots organization.
