Kare N' Totes

"I received a Kare'n Tote as a gift from some friends when I started treatment. I was absolutely amazed at the products that were in the basket. I came to realize how much work Karen had put into finding just the right product for each thing. As doctors told me to get specific products at different points of my treatment, I would look back in the basket at the items I hadn’t tried yet, and there was exactly what I needed. Thank you Karen for your thoughtful baskets."
