I love strong women. Women who’ve been through stuff. Especially when they’ve endured and turned more tender and wise on the other side of the trouble.
I’m guessing you know a bunch of these souls and have a few favorites.
In the last few months I’ve met several such women who’ve faced down the breast cancer demon. Plus other tough and tender women and men who care for those who are living with breast cancer.
You can meet these remarkable people in our brand new Fix-It and Forget-It PINK Cookbook (coming October 1 in both print and e-format).
I couldn’t be more excited about this latest Fix-It and Forget-It project. We’ve worked arm-in-arm with the Avon Foundation to bring out this new Cookbook.
You know Avon cosmetics. But did you know they have a non-profit foundation that gives $35-$40 million each year to organizations which assist persons who’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer?
I feature 11 of these extraordinary women and one man in this PINK Cookbook—their personal stories, their favorite recipes, their reasons for hope, their unbelievable enthusiasm for helping others who’ve been hit with the disease.
Yes, this is a Cookbook with more than 700 great slow-cooker recipes. But in the book’s opening 60+ pages, you’ll hear the stories of—
● Mara, a pregnant mom who got the dreaded news;
● Mita, a doctor with breast cancer patients who was suddenly diagnosed herself;
● Lillie, a nurse and a survivor, who plans retreats to help other survivors go on;
● Barbara, who did her first Avon Walk at age 60, just to see if she could. She’s since gone on to do more than 30 Walks and has raised more than $1 million for the Avon Crusade;
● And you won’t forget Craig, who makes meals for women who’ve been diagnosed, but have little financial resource. Craig’s organization feeds their families, too.
So why are these stories in a Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook? Because food can settle us down, bring us together, strengthen our friendships, distract us from our fears, underline hope, remind us that we are not alone.
I haven’t been so fired up in a long time! Fix-It and Forget-It PINK Cookbook brings two communities together—those who want to feed their families good food at home, and those who want passionately to support those with breast cancer and to get rid of the disease.
You join these two sister causes when you buy and use this book.
We at Good Books are giving a minimum of $1.00 to the Avon Foundation for every copy of this book that sells.
We’ve taken our bestselling, revised and updated Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook and added this whole section to it, filled with inspiring stories, breast health information, and tips.
