Cupcakes for Cancer

Cupcakes for Cancer_pineapple background save date

Everybody loves cupcakes! But “Cupcakes for Cancer” have double the love as they are baked not only to satisfy your sweet tooth but to support cancer treatment and research!

Cupcakes for Mark is the brain child of Makenna Liess aka “The Cupcake Girl." Makenna was 5 when her uncle Mark Hemmers died of a rare thyroid cancer. Once diagnosed, Mark took part in a clinical trial at the Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation. That trial gave Mark over 2 years of quality life that he would not have otherwise had. Makenna wanted others to have the same opportunity as Mark had and so “Cupcakes for Cancer” was born.

The tradition is now in its 9th year which has expanded over the years to include a night of festivities that include raffles, food, drinks and of course Makenna’s delicious cupcakes! Join Makenna and Cupcakes for Cancer for another successful evening.
