Cookies for Kids' Cancer Bake Sale

I might be the worst friend EVER. (I know Heidi will forgive me!) I promised to do a post about this cookie fundraiser and have not had the time!

So, I am copying Heidi's post from today about the sale. If you live in the area, please read and support if you can. If you're not in the area, or unable to make it to the bake sale,
you can also support Leo and his family by clicking HERE.

In August 2009, Max's best friend Leo was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer, Burkitt's Lymphoma.

The boys were only four years old at the time, and as Max went on to enjoy his pre-K year of preschool, Leo went on to endure many months of treatment.

I am happy to say that the treatment worked. Leo is now cancer-free! :-)

Leo's mom Joy is one of my best friends, and I have been helping her organize a bake sale to benefit Cookies for Kids' Cancer. Joy feels about Cookies for Kids' Cancer the way I feel about JDRF.

Last week, I baked and froze dozens of cookies, and anyone who knows me well knows that I'm a pretty good baker (if I do say so myself!).

Many other friends and local bakeries are also donating cookies and cakes and muffins and more to the sale. There will be lots of scrumptious stuff!

You won't see any price tags on the baked goods. Volunteers working the bake sale tables will accept donations of any amount, and all donations will go directly to Cookies for Kids' Cancer, which supports pediatric cancer research.

GLAD® will match all funds raised through its Glad to Give program. How awesome is that?

If you live in the area, won't you please be a good cookie and help us raise dough for pediatric cancer research?
