The Smile Never Fades, Inc. (hereinafter TSNF) was formed in 2009 as a 501 (c)3 non-profit, after breast cancer took the life of my wife, of more than 23 years, and forever changed mine..
The mission of TSNF:
Dedicated to the mission of providing direct help and support to breast cancer survivors. instead of raising money for research or awareness, TSNF provides direct, in home, support for necessities such as professional housecleaning, grocery delivery and transportation to and from medical procedures.
This is being done through strategic partnerships with nationwide providers, such as Merry Maids, Burpy, Inc and Uber, Inc. paid for by the sale and distribution of Comfort Cooking-Food That Makes Us Smile.
Comfort Cooking, the cookbook, was created in Austin, TX. as a mechanism to fund these services to the local community. A social media campaign asking for breast cancer survivors, or those impacted by breast cancer, to submit favorite family recipes was launched. Inviting our team to the home to photograph the finished dish as well as the food.
While there are many cookbooks that advise cancer survivors as to which foods to eat and which to avoid are readily available. The recipes in 'Comfort Cooking-Food That Makes Us Smile' are those which we all love! Family favorites, submitted entirely by those impacted by breast cancer.
Comfort Cooking, The Living Cookbook is styled after the original book.
TSNF will be asking for and able to accept images and recipes from anyone, anywhere in the world impacted by breast cancer. As the growth of the app increases, so will the variety and scope of the recipes.
We see this app as a means of creating the first ever 'Living Cookbook', uniquely authored entirely by those impacted by breast cancer , growing into the world's largest of it's kind.
With your help, distribution will continue to grow so that we may provide these services to an ever widening geographic area for an ever increasing number of people who desperately need this help.
