CURE Childhood Cancer

More Than Bakers, These Publix Ladies Are True Humanitarians

The ladies who work in the bakery for the Publix Super Market in the Wade Green Village Shopping Center in Kennesaw are very good at baking. However, what most don’t know, is that the ladies in the Publix bakery add a little sweetness to the days of many children battling cancer at the Aflac Cancer Center at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta‘s Scottish Rite and Egleston campuses.

For over six years, on Monday and Wednesday mornings, the ladies have baked goodies for CURE Childhood Cancer to bring to children visiting the Aflac Cancer Center for cancer treatment or follow up care. Parents and their children, nurses and volunteers all know that when a liaison from CURE’s Patient & Family Services arrives that she will have a package of muffins, cookies, cupcakes and more!

“What little heroes these children are,” observe the Publix staff. “We know that when we are baking for CURE, we are baking for the children who are going through things they should never face. We are so happy to be able to do this for CURE and for the children.”

We want to thank these Publix ladies for their continuous years of support. Some of these children might consider the baked goods as part of their therapy, and what could be sweeter than that?
