As you all know, I’m a bit of a foodie. While I often lead you to my favorite places to eat, I wanted to take a different approach today and send you to a little bakery- not to support my addiction to sweets, but to support One Tough Cookie Fund, and one brave little girl.
A very dear friend of one of our SQMer’s is currently fighting a battle. Their 9 year old daughter, Jessica, has a brain tumor and she is courageously fighting her battle every day. I have a 9 year old daughter myself, and I cannot imagine what this little girl, or her family, are going through. Despite this unfortunate situation, Jessica remains brave and her doctors have called her a “tough cookie”, which paved the way to the name of her fund that is supporting Brain Tumor Research.
The One Tough Cookie Fund in support of Brain Tumor Research is currently being fueled by the Petal Dust Bakery on Bathurst. Laurie Waldman, the owner of the Petal Dust Bakery, has been gracious enough to sell cookies all through the month of November. They’re beautifully decorated, and absolutely delicious! Trust me, I’ve tried a few of them. These delectable cookies are only $3 and 50% of each sale is donated to the One Tough Cookie Fund! I feel a little less guilty for scarfing down a few cookies knowing that they were going towards a great cause!
If you would like to contribute to Jessica’s One Tough Cookie Fund in support of Brain Tumor Research, visit the Petal Dust Bakery on 9301 Bathurst Street in Richmond Hill. But wait! Before you make the trip to RIchmond Hill, Laurie Waldman advises that you call ahead of time to see if they have the cookies in stock since they are selling out fast!
So what are you waiting for?! Head to the Petal Dust Bakery to get One Tough Cookie… or maybe a few 🙂 Support the cause and let’s help Jessica in her fight against brain tumors!
