It’s Not REALLY About The Ice Cream

This event is really all about supporting some pretty incredible kids with cancer, and not about the ice cream (even though it’s pretty awesome too) and here’s why:

A cancer momma sent this to me, “ My daughter, Sophia, was diagnosed with Epenymoma brain cancer and endured multiple resections and shunt replacements. She woke up from her last surgery and shocked us by asking for ice cream. She had a feeding tube in place for 8 months and had been refusing to eat. I was just about at my breaking point. I will never ever forget that day. I actually sobbed when she asked for ice cream.”

Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day is about being childlike and about meeting kids where they are at and rejoicing if they want to eat anything at all during treatment.

So, on February 18th, we encourage you to use whatever substitutions you wish as you support the fighting, remember the resting and party on with the survivors.

If you eat:

  • Paleo
  • Keto
