It all started with a simple loaf of bread. In October 2012, after losing a dear friend to breast cancer, I really wanted to do something to make a little bit of a difference in the lives of cancer patients directly. I began baking bread and using all the proceeds to purchase fuel cards for people undergoing cancer treatment. The response from so many people from, literally, around the world, with monetary donations and several hundreds loaves of bread baked, I’ve been humbled to touch the lives of close to 1,500 patients! I know with the continued support, thousands more warriors can be touched by Simple Loaf Of Bread!
After having a cancer scare with our 13 year son in Oct of 2013, I realized that there is a large group of warriors, the Tween’kle Toes (think 11-12 year olds up to 19-20) who could really use some attention. I sent the word out, mainly on Facebook, asking for cash, gift cards or “teen approved” gifts. Hundreds of gifts poured in. With the support of so many people in my community who helped wrap the gifts and label them underneath (for the nurses to pick the perfect gift for the patient) we were able to deliver over 300 gifts to 3 different clinics in the area.
