Pizza to fight breast cancer
Aug 8, 2011
The national magazine Pizza Today, which is the largest pizza trade magazine, will be running a foundation titled "Slice of Hope" this October, according to TC Palm.
The "Slice of Hope" campaign is asking pizzerias all over the country, nearly 70,000 of them, to donate their sales on October 7th in hopes of receiving some good breast cancer health news in the near future. Many pizzerias are already on board, and are planning for quite a lot of money to be donated to the cause, according to the media outlet.
"My mother and mother-in-law both battled breast cancer. This is an issue near and dear to my heart," Jeremy White, the editor-in-chief of Pizza Today, told the news source. "October is national pizza month and breast cancer awareness month. I wanted to incorporate the two to do something for breast cancer."
According to the Susan G. Komen organization, one in eight women in the U.S. will at one point be diagnosed with breast cancer. It is recommended that every woman starts to receive yearly mammograms once they reach 40 years of age.
