Chef Robyn Almodovar of Palate Party and Jamie Bendola of the Meraki Agency are teaming up for a great cause. Through out the month of October we are going to be Cooking for the FIGHT AGAINST cancer. Food For The Fight is an event that gives Jamie the opportunity to give back beyond her own financial means to Moffitt for all they have done for her and her family. Proceeds are going to the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, FL (where Jamie is a patient) and are going to be split between Patient Care and the Center for Women's Oncology. Since November 2010 Moffitt has found financial aid (Jamie has no insurance coverage) for Jamie’s surgery which was estimated over $100,000 and free treatment for a year. Hopefully with events like these others without insurance will be able to find funding for the treatment they need as well. Food For The Fight is also about spreading cancer awareness so hopefully more people will get treatment before its too late.
