Bald and Beautiful

The other day I was at a middle school soccer game and one of the players had obviously been through cancer treatment recently. She was thin as a rail and bald, but she was out there and she was competing–with not an ounce of backing down. She was a fighter – a cancer fighter. I could tell that our team was unsure how to play/engage that young lady on the field. I told my daughter that if she is on the field, she wants to play and, her parents, her doctors and coaches have given her the green light. Admire her for getting out on the field and show her respect by letting her compete, but now is not the time for charity or kid gloves.

Some of you might be thinking, “Hang on. She has had a huge battle with cancer and, and, and, ….” My daughter got to guard her a fair amount during that game. After a few minutes into the game, it was plain to see that this beautiful, bald cancer fighter wanted to play and didn’t want to be treated any differently than any other player.

Cancer fighters are tough people, but you know who else are tough people? The families, her friends, the care givers, the doctors and nurses. Cancer wreaks havoc on families and it takes a coordinated team effort to support the cancer fighter.

As a farmer, it brings me no greater joy than to come alongside a cancer fighter to grow and deliver to them organically grown fruits and vegetables. If you are battling Cancer, please let us know. We would consider it an honor to pray for you and put a Health Discount on your account. I also want to say that everyone on the Klesick team believes in you, believes that you are precious in the sight of God and that you are fearfully and wonderfully made to do good things both today and in the future. Keep fighting.

Here is the Klesick Farms Cancer Fighting Plan:

1. We believe in prayer. If you would like us to pray specifically for you or someone you know who is fighting Cancer (or anything else) email He organizes our prayer time and customer interactions. All of us care, but Mike is gifted when it comes to caring. Or, you can use this link to submit a prayer request or share your story.

2. Everything we sell is a part of the solution. We don’t carry GMO products and 95% of what we provide is fruits and vegetables. Some customers have joined together to fund a Cancer Fighter’s account, so that they don’t have to shop or think about it. Home delivery is great way to come along side and add tangible help. Call us to set up an account for a friend, co-worker or family member. 360-652-4663

3. Lastly, we have a discount program for families fighting cancer or heart disease. If you are in the fight of your life, let us know so we can add the health discount to your account. If you would like to donate towards this, we will make sure your donation gets applied to a family fighting Cancer. We are here to help and be a part of the solution.
