Local Group Publishes Third Cookbook to Fight Cancer

The Brad Kaminsky Foundation for Brain Tumor Research, an Ashburn, Virginia based not for profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and funds for brain tumor research, has collected the best recipes from cancer affected patients, their families and friends, and compiled them into a beautiful hard back cookbook. This is the third volume for the local group. Volumes one and two combined raised over $20,000 for brain tumor research.

The cookbooks may be purchased by contacting Lisa Millar at www.buyacookbook.org or calling 703-729-9897 or toll free at 1-866-484-CURE. All proceeds benefit brain tumor research. The cookbook contains over 250 well-loved recipes, including appetizers, main dishes, desserts and many others. Recipes include the contributor’s name, enabling you to find the recipes of family and friends. The books sell for twenty dollars each plus shipping and handling and the three-volume set (including over 800 recipes) can be purchased for fifty dollars, plus shipping and handling. This book makes a great gift idea or addition to your cookbook library, and contributes funding to assist doctors in finding effective treatments and ultimately a cure for this horrible disease. Millar is also asking for people to submit recipes in honor or memory of a loved one for the Volume IV cookbook. Recipes may be submitted by going to www.tbkf.org and clicking on the “submit recipe” link.

The foundation was started in 2000 when Millar’s brother, Brad, was diagnosed with a glioblastoma multiforme brain tumor. Brad grew up and worked as an Assistant District Attorney outside of Philadelphia, Pa and graduated college and Law School at the University of Maryland. He passed away at the young age of 29 leaving behind two small children, Jessica, now 10 and Aaron, now 6. Millar, along with the many “warriors” affected by brain tumors, has vowed to continue the fight in honor of those still fighting and in memory of those who can no longer fight.

Brain Tumors are now the number one cause of cancer death in children under 19 and the second leading cause of cancer death in young adults under the age of 35.
