This past Friday marked the day, ten years ago, I was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer.  It was, in fact, on an actual Friday. Weird, huh? Three days later, I was in surgery. Fortunately, I have been cancer-free for five years.  I have said it before, and won’t rehash things, but the whole experience was life changing.  It was not only life changing with how I looked at myself, but how I look at others, their reactions, etc…good, bad, or indifferent. .  Blessed, I was one of the lucky ones.  So, Cooking to Combat Cancer been a special event to me.

Although this year included the least amount of participants as compared to other years, I appreciate the thoughts and efforts of each person. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

(Winos & Foodies)  brings Sopa de Ajo to the round up.

Melissa (Miel et Lait) made Gobi Aloo

Sharona (Bird Food) offers Avocado and Grapefruit Salad over Arugula

My contributions:

Fish Tacos (deconstructed)

Carrot Soup

Because I wanted to promote the importance of fresh ingredients and their relationship to cancer-fighting attributes, I am extending the list. The posts below, which include recipes with cancer-fighting foods, are ones I have some across over recent months as I read through my Google Reader.

Now, I know many of you whip up dishes in your kitchen that include cancer-fighting foods.  If so, be sure to include a link in your comments below.  Even though this round up didn’t produce as many posts as I would have hoped, there isn’t any reason why we can’t keep an ongoing listing.  Right?
