Virtual Cookin’ Men Event Serves Up Breast Cancer Awareness in a New Way

Evangelical Community Hospital is holding its annual Cookin’ Men event where local celebrity men turn up the heat on breast cancer awareness by creating culinary delights. Due to the pandemic, this year’s event has gone virtual with the same goal of raising funds to support The Thyra M. Humphreys Center for Breast Health.

Weis Markets is the grand sponsor of this year’s event.

From October 19, 2020 through October 30, 2020, community members are asked to visit www.EvanHospital.com/CookinMen. All funds raised during the virtual event will support the very important cause of providing funds for women of the region to receive breast screenings regardless of their ability to pay.

Monetary donations will determine which one of the chefs receives the honor of TOP CHEF. The chef raising the most dollars during the open period of the event will be given the title. Chefs participating are Alex Bernt of The Special Place; Rob Dacko of Weis Markets; Drew Kelly of The Miller Center; Tom Morgan and Keith Good of Sunbury Broadcasting Corporation and The Soupie Brothers; Dale Moyer of Evangelical Community Hospital; Timm Moyer and Ric Jones of MoJo Active Incorporated; Dr. James Patterson of Family Medicine of Evangelical-Lewisburg; Chris Peifer and Micah Miner of Susquehanna Valley Limousine and National Beef; Chef Marco Romano of the Rusty Rail Brewing Company; Fred Scheller of The Daily Item; Dr. John Turner of The Thyra M. Humphreys Center for Breast Health; and a chef team from Geisinger.

The event includes a special prize for the supporter who makes the largest donation to each chef. The highest donor for each chef will win that chef’s dish, delivered to the winner’s home at a mutually agreed upon day and time.

The Center for Breast Health, located at 210 JPM Road, Lewisburg, has a dedicated team of specialists who provide comprehensive screenings, diagnosis, and treatment for women. The Center includes a navigation program for patients to aid in understanding their path of care and making sure they are following the path for the most optimal outcome. After diagnosis the Center offers survivors support through clinics, programs, and one-on-one attention with professionals trained to understand the psychological, physical, emotional, and social effects of a cancer diagnosis.

October is a special month of breast cancer focus—a time of collaboration when national public service organizations, professional medical associations, and government agencies come together to promote breast cancer awareness, share information on the disease, and provide greater access to services. Most importantly, the month reminds women to take control of their health by scheduling a yearly mammogram starting at the age of 40 to increase the chances of early detection of breast cancers.
