The Aloe story is tragic yet inspiring. Allison Francis Hall Nelson, also known as “Aloe”, was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 28, only 2 months away from her wedding. As her sickness progressed, Allison started looking into other means of cancer prevention and treatment, including organic diets. This led her to dedicate a portion of the family ranch to growing and distributing organic food to others with cancer.
In March of 2012 Allison succumbed to cancer. Though she is no longer with us, her memory lives on with family and friends, and in the farm that bares her name: Aloe Organics. Her family continues to grow healthy, organic produce to donate to cancer patients and to sell at local area market.
