Cooking with the Community helps raise breast cancer awareness

BISMARCK, N.D. - Wednesday night community members had the chance to learn more than just a new recipe at Karmin's Kitchen in Bismarck, as they also had a chance to ask questions about breast cancer.

The kitchen store partnered with Sanford Health doctors who were on hand making chili and cornbread. While they were cooking, those who stopped by asked questions about breast cancer, mammograms and genetic testing. The store owner says her grandma had breast cancer so she's doing all she can to make sure everyone is educated on the subject.

"I'm hoping that people you know get into the clinics and get their early mammograms and stuff like that and get some education about cancer and that they get to enjoy some great meals and some new recipes also,” Karmin Billadeau said.

Tickets were sold for the event with all proceeds going to the Edith Sanford Breast Foundation.
