Eat Dessert First Day- Fight Childhood Cancer
It’s simple to participate…
During the month of April, eat dessert first for lunch or dinner while celebrating the presence of family and friends in your life.
Make a gift to help fund pediatric cancer research at the UA Steele Children's Research Center!
Share a photo of your participation on the Eat Dessert First Facebook page!
Encourage your loved ones to participate in honor of a special cancer warrior in their life.
Eat Dessert First Day began in 2015 in honor of Dana Morgan. Known to many as “Dananator” because of her champion spirit and contagious energy, she was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia at the tender age of four. This day honors Dana’s palpable enthusiasm for life, her appreciation for the fun that comes from doing the unexpected, and the tremendous importance she placed on spending time with family and friends.
While inspired by Dana, Eat Dessert First Day is in honor of all childhood cancer warriors and the parents who go to bed each night praying that research will find treatments that enable their precious children to survive and thrive.
Please help us hit our goal of $7,000 for pediatric cancer research! Since our first Eat Dessert First Day three years ago, we have raised over $20,000 for the Steele Children's Research Center. Can we count on you to make an even bigger impact this year?
