This month Raspberry Moon is going to be very busy with several awesome charity fund raisers. Be sure to check them out and I hope you can support these worthy causes.

I am currently testing out some new products but I would like to hear what kinds of items you would like to see at the shop. Do you have an item that you really love but it is hard to find? Would you like to see baby products, more bath and body items, candles, relaxing products, or men's items, etc? What specifically are you looking for in these products? (Natural, Organic, Packaging, Size, Price etc.) For those of you that take the time to email me your ideas, I will send you a little thank you.

Calling all Teens (or Mothers of Teens) - Keep your eyes open for next month's newsletter. We have an awesome new line coming in that I can not wait for you to try!

August – Grande Margarita
September – NoniTini



What is Noni? Noni has been said to be the fountain of youth for aging. In the past few decades scientific studies support the claims of the Hawaiians and Polynesians of the Noni fruit's remarkable healing power. Noni has been a Hawaiian tradition for centuries. It is packed with essential nutrients including linoleic acid, alkaloids, amino acids, vitamins and enzymes. These are essential for repairing cells and replenishing nutrients at the inter cellular level.

Copper Peptides - Copper Peptides are wound healing. They stimulate the collagen and elastin as well as enhance the action of antioxidant activity.

DMAE - DMAE produces an instant semi-permanent firmness that can last up to 10 days.

Cost: $75 each.

Join us for the 6th Annual Piggy Bank Auction on Thursday, September 20, 2007 at the BMW Performance Center Driving School. The Piggy Bank Auction is a silent and live auction of 60 “designer” piggy banks and indulgences, with each piggy bank designed by local artists and businesses.

This was so much fun last year. The piggy banks were awesome and the items that you could bid on were amazing! Grey Thompson (of ColorOfGrey.com) and I will be teaming up again - he will design the piggy bank to compliment my donated services. Please come to the auction and support a great cause!

Banquet and Silent Auction for Salee - Healing the Wounds of War

September 24, 2007 – 5:30 to 9:00 pm at Caesar’s Restaurant

Salee Allawe, age 9, was injured in November 2006 when an errant missile struck near her home in Hasswa, Iraq. Salee's brother, Akram, and another young playmate were killed instantly in the attack. Salee lived, but lost both lower legs near the knee. On July 8, No More Victims and UCC succeeded in bringing Salee to Greenville for surgery and prostheses - treatments unavailable to her under current conditions in Iraq. Since beginning her treatments at Greenville Shriners Hospital, Salee has made truly remarkable progress. To learn more about Salee's treatment, visit her Greenville News web page at www.greenvilleonline.com/Salee.

Caesar's will be hosting a Banquet and Silent Auction on Sept 24 from 5:30 -9:00 pm to raise funds for Salee's family in Iraq. More information on the banquet and items available for auction.

September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

The face of Ovarian Cancer looks just like yours. This year, more than 20,000 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer. More than 15,000 American women will die from ovarian cancer this year. That's a 75% mortality rate.

South Carolina Ovarian Cancer FoundationUntil there's a test, awareness is best.

The South Carolina Ovarian Cancer Foundation (SCOCF) was created by ovarian cancer patients, healthcare providers, and other concerned individuals for the dissemination of information about ovarian cancer. Our group has been built for the support of ovarian cancer patients, for the education of the public and healthcare providers, and to further research on ovarian cancer in the state of South Carolina. The disease continues to be a leading cause of death in women in the United States. At this time, many women diagnosed with ovarian cancer have advanced disease and require prolonged medical treatment. We at the foundation would like to see this change so that fewer women have advanced disease and that all women have the availability of support, and access to information if they so choose.

Ovarian Cancer is the Deadliest of the Gynecologic Cancers. Early detection can improve survival rates from 25 percent to over 90 percent. Be alert to changes in your body.

Ovarian Cancer Symptoms
Ovarian cancer causes symptoms in many women. If you have a combination or many of these symptoms for more than three weeks and they are unusual for you, please see a health care professional.

  • Abdominal bloating or discomfort
  • Increased abdominal size or clothes fitting tighter around your waist
  • Increased or urgent need to urinate
  • Pelvic pain

Additional signs and symptoms that women with ovarian cancer may experience include:

  • Persistent gas, indigestion or nausea
  • Unexplained changes in bowel habits, including diarrhea or constipation
  • Unexplained weight loss or gain
  • Loss of appetite
  • Feeling full quickly during or after a meal
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • A persistent lack of energy
  • Low back pain
  • Shortness of breath

Symptoms are often associated with the location of the tumor and its impact on the surrounding organs. They tend to be non-specific and can mimic non-gynecologic conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, etc. Many of us experience these symptoms from time to time - do not be alarmed! But if they persist and seem unusual then seek a professional opinion.

Take Action - Consult a healthcare professional if any symptoms persist or feel abnormal. Experts recommend a pelvic/rectal exam, a transvaginal sonogram, and a CA 125 blood test. Pap tests rarely detect ovarian cancer.
