Recently I have been planning a bake sale for the organization Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. It is going to be on Saturday, November 24th, 2012 at the Davie Nadadores Annual Thanksgiving BBQ . There is no better time of the year than the approaching holidays to give kids with cancer help for funding their research. It might come as a surprise that pediatric cancer is the number one disease killer in the U.S. of children under the age of 18. In fact, it kills more children than asthma, AIDS, muscular dystrophy and multiple sclerosis combined. Unfortunately, pediatric cancer receives a very small percentage of the National Cancer Institute’s $4.8 billion annual budget and almost no research and development dollars from pharmaceutical companies. You can also help by buying cookies for yourself, or make it a gift for someone special. I am glad that I can spread the word through my blog and other social media outlets, and hopefully motivate one of you to create a bake sale in your community! Looking forward to baking wonderful cookie and brownie recipes for this great cause!
