Having cancer is equalizing. I am working to help provide high quality, affordable health care to all people, and at the same time, encourage people to
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 22, 2008
On October 25th, cancer prevention nonprofit, Bon Ami, will present a media night with Dr. T. Colin Campbell, author of NY Times best seller, The China Study. Campbell's study affirmed that a specific type of diet can work to better prevent diseases, including cancer. The event will be hosted at Karyn's Raw Food Restaurant, located at 1901 Halsted, where Karyn Calabrese will prepare hors d'oeuvres for guests to demonstrate Campbell's recommended diet. Doors open at 3:30 pm with a 30-minute press conference at 4pm, and media social hour and hors devours and organic wines served until 6pm
Recently, Dr. Campbell affiliated with Bon Ami, a community-based, 501[c]3 non-profit, whose mission is to empower cancer survivors to better prevent new cancers and/or recurrences.
"After reading Dr. Campbell's book and asking him direct questions, I have to believe that food can control and prevent cancer", professed Gloria Jean Sykes, award winning national television producer and investigative author, cancer survivor and founder of Bon Ami. "After I was cured of a small, rare breast cancer, my goal was to make lifestyle changes so I could better prevent new cancers and/or recurrences; however, there was no place for me to go and nobody who had answers on how to prevent cancer. I had cancer and I don't want it again, as I am positive, other cancer survivors feel the same way."
Bon Ami's motto is "Eat Clean, Exercise & Live Green". To achieve this mission Bon Ami provides clear and complete information through groundbreaking programs, so men, women and children are empowered with options and are better equipped to make lifestyle changes that enable cancer survivors to prevent new cancers and/or recurrences.
On Saturday, October 25th, Dr. T. Colin Campbell, will be a part of Bon Ami's media night to not only promote their first annual "Eat Clean for LIFE" dinner event to be held on Friday, November 14, but also, to empower audiences. Proceeds will go to Bon Ami's groundbreaking programs, "Adopt A Furry Friend to Save TWO Lives" and Animals Helping Kids Cope." This is the first time Dr. Campbell will address the general public via the media. Earlier that day he will address over 50,000 dieticians at the National Dieticians Conference to be held at McCormick Place.
It is also expected that Congressman Bobby Rush, a recent cancer survivor, will participate in the media night. The Congressman's involvement with Bon Ami is both personal and professional; as a cancer survivor, he too wants to prevent a new cancer and/or recurrence and also, wants to help the underserved so they not only have access to high quality care, but support during their treatments and after care, so they are also empowered to prevent new cancers and/or recurrences. It was Congressman Bobby Rush who coined the word, "self-care".
"Having cancer is equalizing. I am working to help provide high quality, affordable health care to all people, and at the same time, encourage people to "self-care". Healthcare and self-care are both vitally important," said Rush.
One-on-one interviews with Dr. T. Colin Campbell can be arranged separately by contacting Ray Hillstrom at 773-775-4090 if you are not able to attend the media night. The Bon Ami media night is will begin at 4 pm on the October 25th at Karyn's which is located at 1901 North Halsted St. in Chicago.
