These days, every one has been touched by cancer. However, it is especially devastating when a child is diagnosed with the disease. I am so proud to be a part of the Xocai (“show-sigh”) Atlanta Healthy Chocolate Team! We are rallying to help find a CURE for childhood cancer by hosting a Chocolate Tasting fundraiser on October 12, 2011. Many on the Atlanta Xocai Team have been touched by cancer, and some by childhood cancer. Health conscious Libby Patrick, a Xocai distributor, is a childhood cancer survivor, and my niece, Florence White, is a two-time childhood cancer survivor.
Kim & Joseph Kawach, owners of Basil’s restaurant, wanted to host an event at their restaurant during October, which is Cancer Awareness Month. When they learned that only 2% of all federal cancer research dollars go toward pediatric cancer research, they knew this was a cause they wanted to help. Mrs. Kawach said, “We have three children and cannot imagine the heartbreak parents feel with a cancer diagnosis for your child. We are excited to do what we can to make a difference.”
