Steph’s Online Bake Sale

As many of you know, my Dad battled with Leukemia in 2009.

According to Wikipedia,

Leukemia (from the Greek leukos – white, and haima – blood) is a type of cancer of the blood or bone marrow characterized by an abnormal increase of white blood cells. Leukemia is a broad term covering a spectrum of diseases. In turn, it is part of the even broader group of diseases called hematological neoplasms.

In 2000, approximately 256,000 children and adults around the world developed some form of leukemia, and 209,000 died from it.About 90% of all leukemias are diagnosed in adults.

aka… it’s scary stuff.

Thank goodness my Dad was able to push through, but unfortunately many people aren’t as lucky.

Steph over at Steph’s Bite by Bite is hosting a bake sale on Friday May 13th to raise money for the San Diego Rock n Roll Marathon to benefit Team in Training and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

I’ve donated my Cinnibun Oat Streusel Muffins and hope to raise loads of money from these babies.

On Friday the 13th [if you’re able], please head over to Steph’s blog and make a small donation that will in turn help others like my Dad put an end to cancer and have a second chance at life.

Thanks all – and oh yes, can’t forget… Happy Mothers Day to all you amazing mommies out there!

  1. I am a Lymphoma survivor, so I have been involved with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. This is a great cause! I know that generous donations went towards research that helped me survive, so I love to get involved in any way I can to help others who might be faced with the same situation I was. I will definitely be stopping by on Friday!

  2. Thanks for sharing this. I have mentioned before that I have a personal connection with the disease too… I’m always happy to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (and Team in Training). And get some delish baked goods. :)
