Help beat sarcoma!

Care for French? Read this post on my French blog: La cuisine de Babeth

For those of you who are in my facebook network you may have received an email from me about help beat sarcoma (and no it's not a spam). And if you're a reader of La cuisine de Babeth or here: La vie in English, you may also have notice that for the last months I always start my postings with:
Rare cancer awareness: don't forget to check: Help beat sarcoma


My friend Nathalie who was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer: sarcoma. I'm not a doctor, I'm just a normal woman who got speechless after learning Nathalie's disease, and who wants to help.
I invite all of you to:
- read her blog: beat sarcoma
- check the web page of the non-profit organization she created: BeatSarcoma.org
- and last but not least you can make a donation to the research team leaded by Amreen Husain
at Stanford.
To donate now click here.

After giving some money to the Stanford research team (who works on sarcoma) I felt I didn't do enough to help. After some brainstorming I had the idea to raise awareness about this cause on internet, but a joyous way. And what more joyous than sharing a good meal!
So my idea is pretty simple: while sharing your favorite Sunday brunch (es) on
http://help-beat-sarcoma-a-thon.blogspot.com/
and on your blog/site (if you have one), you will help raising awareness about this rare form of cancer!

I'm a food lover and my idea is to spread the awareness through the web with a story-chain.

help-beat-sarcoma-a-thon is YOUR blog, and I would like all of you the share your story about your favorite Sunday lunch. Do you like to go out for brunch, can you only have your Mum roast? You name it :-)
