Sweet On A Cure

What's better than eating a yummy dessert? Well, how about eating a yummy dessert and knowing that you are also helping a very worthwhile cause? This week there is a very special promotion going on all around Birmingham in which lots of local restaurants are designating particular sweets from their menu and then donating 100 percent of the proceeds to the new Comprehensive Cancer Center at UAB!

Yes, I am an incredibly biased employee who thinks that UAB is an awesome hospital doing some amazing things. But I am also a very grateful family member!

I'm sure lots of my readers know this, but there are probably some that don't - My mom was a cancer patient at UAB for almost four years. And in those four years she had some of the best care I could have ever dreamed of or hoped for her to have. I am more grateful than words can say for all the care that those doctors and nurses and lab techs and PCTs and even the housekeepers and escorts and everyone else took of her and of us that were there with her. And although my mom lost her battle with cancer four years ago, I know that the care she received helped us have time with her we wouldn't have gotten otherwise, and I know that they are doing all kinds of great things for people.

I am so very excited about the new Cancer Center and hope that you will join me in supporting a really great cause and having a little treat to celebrate the sweetness of life!
