Our first Community Fundraiser for Cancer Relief

2019 Fundraiser in honor of Sid Lancaster for Danielle Edgar

Special Event Dec 7th

Sid Lancaster Cancer Relief Fund – Community Fundraiser

Each year, I (Laura) have decorated a tree in honor of my Dad, for his Birthday on December 7th. My Dad, Sid Lancaster, passed away in 2003, at the age of 57 after a grueling battle with melanoma (skin) cancer. I miss him very much and particularly in December.
He was an elementary school teacher for many years, then a Principal for many more. He loved kids, had a fourth-grade sense of humor which is probably why he got a long so well with his students. Dad  LOVED the out doors, gardening and taking photos of his adventures.


This year, I realized that my decorated tree could do more than silently pay tribute. On Dec 7th, Dad’s Birthday, I would like to raise some funds for a Cache Valley family currently struggling with cancer because I know how draining physically, emotionally as well as financially cancer treatment can be.


On December 7th, 10% of our sales will be donated for this family. I would also like to auction off my decorated tree to add to that fund. If you would like to support this also, please come join us on the 7th.
This year we have chosen to support a family who’s daughter was recently diagnosed with cancer. The information about her and her family is below. 
100% of these donations will go to them for Christmas or whatever Danielle may need.  Thank you so much for any help and well wishes you offer.

A Sincere Thank You from the Edgar family

We would like to thank Laura Merrill and Merry Family Holiday Sales for the fundraiser for #teamDani. Also thank you to those who donated. Many don’t even know us personally.

Dani was able to get her port out on Tuesday and is healing well from that. Hopefully her next visit will be in March to do a 3 month remission followup.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

~Tina Edgar (Dani’s Mother)


And thank you from us (especially Laura)

I am so grateful for the support you gave me in this impulsive last minute dedication to my Dad and fundraiser. I wish to continue this event each year for a different community member or family struggling with cancer. If you have someone you’d like to be considered for the next year, please send a message using the contact form below.

We love and appreciate the people in our community and especially our loyal customers and fans. We could never do what we do without you.

~Laura Merrill
