Recently Meghan Boll, RN (left), a cancer care nurse at Matthews Oncology Associates and Sheboygan Cancer & Blood Specialists, suggested, “We should make a cookbook to raise some money for SCCCF!” Meghan explained that she had been involved in a similar project as a student and board member of the UW-Eau Claire Student Nurses Association in 2015 with proceeds used to purchase gas cards for Eau Claire Mayo Clinic Cancer Center patients where, at the time, she was a volunteer.
“I have always felt that recipes are deeply personal,” Meghan explains. “Many of us can recall our favorite family recipes growing up and that we continue to make to this day, although probably not as well as our moms or dads prepared them! Especially in this patient population, diet and food intake is so important! What better way to support and inspire each other than sharing our favorite family recipes!”
If you are interested in helping with this fundraising effort, please contact Tim today! We are looking for volunteers with creative ideas to contribute as well as those who can help design and format this cookbook.
Otherwise, start thinking about your favorite recipes (especially those that may have been particularly beneficial during a cancer experience) that you may want to share and watch for further details!
