Give a Snap, See a Smile
Mother-daughter team Laura Stachler and Susan Robbins have opened Susansnaps, a gourmet gift shop in Sandy Springs. Stachler began making ginger snap cookies in 2004 to soothe nausea, a side effect from chemotherapy, which both her daughter and husband were going through at the time for Hodgkin’s disease and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, respectively. Fortunately, Robbins and her father are now doing fine, and their tasty treats have become quite a hit. But they haven’t forgotten what they are all about – 10 percent of proceeds on all sales goes to The Susan Carver Foundation, in memory of Stachler’s sister who succumbed to Hodgkin’s at age 28.
