Steelers cooking for a cause
Filed under Magee-Womens Hospital
Our own Pittsburgh Steelers executed some fancy plays in the kitchen for breast cancer survivors Sept. 21 in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October.
For the fourth year, Food Service at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC teamed up with the Steelers to present the Cooking and Eating for a Healthy Life class with about 40 breast cancer survivors and their guests. The survivors are current and former patients of Magee-Womens Breast Cancer Program of UPMC CancerCenter.
Max Starks, tackle, Marshall McFadden, linebacker, and Chris Carter, linebacker, joined Magee chef Joseph Colantuono in chopping, grating, sauteing, and preparing dishes for the healthy cooking demo. During October, the Pittsburgh Steelers join the NFL and its teams in promoting breast cancer awareness.
The Magee-Womens Breast Cancer Program of UPMC CancerCenter stresses the importance of good nutrition to breast cancer survival because maintaining a healthy weight and eating a healthy diet promote overall health and may protect individuals against cancer.
