Research shows eating healthy is an important way to protect yourself from cancer. Eating the right kinds of foods not only fuels cells with nutrients needed to stay healthy, but it can also potentially prevent certain types of cancer. On Sat., Dec. 7, Fresh Millions Restaurant, located at 1515 N. Gilbert Rd., #105, in Gilbert, is donating 50 percent of all purchases made between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m., to Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center to support cancer research.
Fresh Millions is the perfect fit for this type of fundraiser, not only are their foods fresh, healthy and delicious, several of their core team members have been personally impacted by cancer, including Salesh Deo, Operator and Manager, Mrs. Sanghera, mother of Fresh Millions founder, and Lydia Moore, local Director of Operations.
“As a cancer survivor, I always remind myself not to let the disease define me,” said Moore, “Over the years, cancer remained in the back of my mind, but I didn’t let it become my mindset. Doing a fundraiser like this allows us to help others who are in the middle of this fight. We chose Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center because of its significant presence and esteemed reputation in the East Valley. Fresh Millions is now a proud Community Champion for Banner Health.”
According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 1,762,450 cancers will be in diagnosed in 2019, which equates to more than 4,800 new cases each day. The lifetime probability of being diagnosed with cancer is 39.3% for men and 37.7% for women, which is a little more than 1 in 3.
“Fresh Millions Restaurant brand is proud to support the communities where we operate and giving back is an important part of our core philosophy,” added Moore. “Our fundraisers generously give back 50 percent to beneficiaries. For the past five years that we’ve been in the East Valley, we have supported many schools and non-profit groups. Cancer hits close to home for us and we are proud to say that our brand is led daily by survivors who wish to give back, too.”
The December Fresh Millions fundraising event will include prize giveaways, free food sampling, cancer awareness education and much more.
