Baking the world a better place

"Baking the world a better place", a bake sale for breast care awareness

Some people sing in the shower, others draw on tables in class.

I bake.

As a pharmacy student, I decided to link these two worlds and use my passion for baking to raise awareness on illnesses and diseases.

The idea behind the bake sale started with a picture of two pink cupcakes that I posted on social media to spread awareness on breast cancer during pink October. Then I thought to myself:

"Why not use these cupcakes to help an NGO supporting the fight against breast cancer?"

I joined forces with the "USJ Women's Rights Club", who had previously hosted a BC awareness day in 2014. Together, we were able to set a date for the event "Get your pink on" with the Lebanese Breast Cancer Foundation, a non-profit organization supporting breast cancer patients during their treatment.

On the 22nd, pink was the prominent color at the CSM, be it in people's clothing, or in the cupcakes and cakes! "Pink power popcorn" and "Do-nut give up" are two of the many clever and funny slogans I used to show support for people battling breast cancer.

The table was filled with homemade treats, and with a big help from my friends, all the goodies were gone within an hour!

Finally, I would like to say that all funds were donated to the LBCF.

Never underestimate the power of a vision to change the world.

I might be a dreamer, but I hope to bake the world a better place, one cupcake at a time!

Cured of TNBC!
I want to take this time out as a cancer survivor to encourage women out there still suffering from this with my story on how i got a cure. The sad news about it is that i was diagnosed on my 36th birthday in 2008 and with stage 3 TNBC which after i made research was a very aggressive form of cancer at that point i decided and told myself i was going to die and that the end has finally come. All my life i never thought of having breast cancer because i was very active and i worked out at the gym several times every week and my diet was okay. In my search for a cure after 6 years of diagnosis and even after chemo which i did twice spending thousands of dollars but to no avail, until a church member told me all about Dr Aleta a herbal doctor that specializes in treating TNBC, who could help me with a permanent cure, i doubted this at first but i later gave it a try following her methods and instructions. It took 3 months and after it all i felt normal but still went for diagnosis and i was clean today i am proud to say i am a cancer survivor no nodes and i am totally free the new diagnosis confirmed it. Do not die in silence or ignorance reach her on don't be shy just speak to her today.
