This past week has brought about more talk of cancer than I have ever discussed previously in my entire life.
It started when we celebrated with a family member who is in remission. Then, over the weekend we sat by the bed of another loved one who has undergone preventive surgery.
Lastly, it was only yesterday that we received news of another diagnosis in an immediate family member. That one hasn’t even begun to sink in yet.
We’ve all been touched by cancer in some way. Perhaps you’re standing with a dear one right now or in a battle of your own. It’s exhausting.
What to do? Certainly more than sink to the floor of the kitchen and stuff one’s face with baby animal crackers as I unashamedly did when I got the call.
I’ve had this giveaway planned for some time, only now it’s so very, very personal. Although the types of cancer we are dealing with are varied, breast cancer is one area where I had an opportunity to help. So I am.
With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Simple Bites is proud to promote KitchenAid Canada’s Cook For The Cure Program. And there’s a stand mixer to be won.
Now that puts a smile on my face today. Read on for details.
