Do You Like Oatmeal Raisin?Tuesday, August 18, 2009
In my "normal" job, I'm a doctor. I'm not just any kind of doctor, I'm a pediatrician. So, I spend a lot of time around sick kids. Let me tell you, even though I see my fair share of tragedy in my ICU (I'm actually a critical care doctor too), the subspecialty that I could never spend a lot of time in is Oncology. The kids getting their chemo and not complaining.... truly it's heart breaking. They're fighting so hard, and while a lot more of them win those fights now than 20 or 30 years ago, there are too many still losing.
Pediatric research is insanely hard to perform and to fund. Most of the money goes to adult studies. Trust me, kids are not just little adults. So, there is a grassroots movement to help, Cookies for Kids' Cancer.
From August 15th – October 15th philosophy will be donating 100% of the net proceeds of their oatmeal raisin high foaming shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. This organization was created to raise awareness of and funds to support research for new and improved therapies for pediatric cancer through the concept of hosting local bake sales.
So, if you like Oatmeal Raisin cookies as much as I do, pick up a bottle! This 3 in 1 product is one of my favorite bath gels.
