"Cookbook for Cancer" Launch Party this Saturday at The Blue Marble

Fort Thomas native, Jamie Baker, is set to launch her 2nd cookbook "A Taste of Hope Volume II" this Saturday at The Blue Marble.

The launch party for the book will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10, at the Blue Marble Children’s Bookstore in Fort Thomas.

Baker, who was diagnosed with Leukemia is 2006 at age 21, is hoping to top $10,000 that she raised for cancer related organizations after compiling her first cookbook 5 years ago.

From the article posted in The Community Recorder, "Baker said she was inspired to compile a second volume in honor of her five-year remission anniversary in November, all the people she had met and stories she had heard in that time.

For the second book, Baker reached out to some of these people, asking them for their stories of the battles with cancer they and their loved ones had fought."

The article goes on:

"Since others shared their stories for the second book, Baker let them pick where the proceeds would go.

All money raised will be divided between the American Cancer Society, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the Dragonfly Foundation, Flying Horse Farms and St. Baldrick’s 46 Mommas Shave for the Brave group."
