Celebrity cook and author Nadia Lim is encouraging people to get involved and host a breakfast for breast cancer research this month.
Nadia is fronting this year’s Pink Ribbon campaign to raise funds for Breast Cancer Foundation NZ.
Anyone hosting a breakfast will receive exclusive recipes from Nadia.
She says she is delighted by the response so far but urges even more people to get involved.
“Having recently met some incredibly inspiring women who’ve survived breast cancer, I’m even more motivated to help raise funds that will save lives,” Nadia says.
“I encourage everyone to get involved, hopefully inspired by some of the recipes I’ve developed especially for Pink Ribbon Breakfast.”
A recipe for Pear Tart is just one of six exclusive recipes that hosts will receive when they sign up.
Breast Cancer Foundation hopes to top last year’s total of over 3200 breakfasts across New Zealand, which were attended by 90,000 people and raised $1.7 million.
Proceeds from this year’s Pink Ribbon Breakfasts will go towards breast cancer research, with a focus on support for clinical trials, immunotherapies, preventing the spread of cancer, improved clinical practice for better patient outcomes, and treatments for advanced breast cancer. They will also help provide breast awareness education as well as support for patients. With more than 3000 Kiwis diagnosed and 600 a year still dying of breast cancer, New Zealand doctors and researchers have a vital role to play.
