Cookbook Raises Money For Childhood Cancer Camp
A cookbook dedicated to cancer survivors and those who've lost the battle is available for Christmas purchase.
Its called 'Cooking with Inspiration' and according to Jason's Friend's Founder, Lisa Eades, the cookbook is filled with recipes from survivors, patients and their families.
"Its a great collection. There are 80 pages of different recipes coming from cancer survivors, really just people who've been impacted by cancer throughout the state of Wyoming."
Eades says what's really special is that, thanks to grant money, 100 percent of the proceeds will go toward Wyoming's first-ever summer childhood cancer camp.
"This is going to be a camp that's available to any child throughout the state of Wyoming that's been touched by cancer, but also for their whole family. So this will cater to their siblings, to their parents. It's really designed to be a camp where they can gather as a family unit with other families and maybe step away from that nasty cancer word for a few days and be together."
She says the camp has been a dream of the Jason's Friends Foundation for a long time and now, partnering with the Wyoming Comprehensive Cancer Control Consortium, the dream is becoming a reality. The cook book, she says, is full of recipes submitted with love. The recipes, Eades says capture local flavors and include one of kind recipes, plus stories and pictures.
You can order a copy from the website www.fightcancerwy.com.

Again, 100 percent of the proceeds raised from the sale of this book go towards the creation of Wyoming's first-ever childhood cancer camp."
That first camp experience is scheduled for next August at the Crooked Creek Guest Ranch in Dubois, Wyoming.
