Happy New Year! I hope you all have had a great start to the year. Loving Arms Cancer Outreach is excited to see what this new year brings. Dancing With The Stars of Cobb County was such a successful event that we have decided to make it an annual event! We raised almost $40,000 thanks to so many of you and our fabulous dancers, instructors, sponsors and many volunteers. If you know a local star that would like to dance at this year’s event, please send us an email. Make sure you put September 26th on your calendar!!
This week is an exciting week! Holly Clegg graciously sent us a copy of her newest cookbook Bien Durante El Cancer. Eek! We’ll have a recipe for you next week complete with English translation. So, be sure to stop by for that!
In the mean time, I’m here to help you make it through the first rough days of winter with Holly’s delicious chili recipe. Who doesn’t love a nice bowl of hot chili on a cold winter night? And this recipe is super easy. Continue Reading
Welcome back! Hope you are having a fabulous week.
My life has been filled to the brim with busyness this past week, so I am bringing you a sweet and simple recipe this time: An Awesome Milkshake. That’s right, a milkshake. It’s wonderful for those of you with sore mouths or sore throats, and it can be modified to help you gain some weight! Woo!
Now that we are all excited and collectively craving milkshakes, here’s what you need…
Okay, you have cancer. Now, which will you be to those around you – a Warrior or a Child?
Lately I’ve been winning battles
left and right
But even winners can get wounded
in the fight
People say that I’m amazing
Strong beyond my years
But they don’t see inside of me
I’m hiding all the tears
Happy Tuesday! I hope your week so far has been grand. If your day could use a little pick-me-up, you should definitely give this week’s recipe a try! Mocha Cappuccino Pudding Pie. There is nothing but goodness in this pie, as the title shows. Plus, it’s super simple!
Welcome to Loving Arms Cancer Outreach’s first edition of Tasty Tuesdays! We want to provide cancer patients and families options for healthy, delicious meals. For the next couple weeks, we’ll be working our way through Eating Well Through Cancer by Holly Clegg & Gerald Mietello, M.D. It’s a great resource for finding the right foods to eat for the right ailments.
The book walks you through foods to eat the day of Chemotherapy, if you are experiencing low white blood cell count, diarrhea, constipation, sore mouth or throat, if you need to gain some weigh, and what to eat post treatment. There is even a section of suggested meals to bring to a friend experiencing cancer. It’s got a little bit of something for everyone!
