Pizza Haus helps fund breast cancer research

Pizza Haus, Batesville, is offering breast cancer patients a Slice of Hope Friday, Oct. 4. The restaurant is helping raise critical funding for breast cancer research by donating a percentage of its sales that day to the Karen Mullen Breast Cancer Foundation, a national charity based in Seattle that has committed to giving 100 percent of the Slice of Hope proceeds to a handful of the nation's leading breast cancer research labs, a news release stated.

Slice of Hope has banded together pizzerias from across the nation in an effort to fight this invasive disease, which will impact hundreds of thousands of women and men this year. In fact, more than 190,000 new cases will be diagnosed and, sadly,about 40,000 women will die from the disease this year. That's approximately 110 breast cancer deaths daily.

Pizza Haus manager Kirk Yorn observes, "There isn't a person in this country who hasn't felt the effects of breast cancer in some way. Whether you've had the disease yourself, or a family member or friend has had it, it's safe to say you've been impacted by breast cancer. Pizza Haus wants to do something to help end this disease. That's why we've joined Slice of Hope."

Slice of Hope is spearheaded by Pizza Today magazine editor Jeremy White. White, publisher Pete Lachapelle and a small team of cyclists will bike throughout New England Oct. 9-12 to raise awareness for its fight against breast cancer.
