Click – Yellow for Bri

Omelette Sushi

This is my entry for the CLICK – Yellow for Bri event.

Recipe (adapted from here): Steam or cook in a boiling water for a few minutes some chard (about 8 large leaves, big middle leaf vein cut out). Beat 3 eggs with 1 Tbsp of flour and 1 Tbsp of milk and pour in a heated non-stick pan. Fry like you’re making crepes. Do not flip over. When it’s almost done place chard and surimi crab sticks in a line and carefully roll it like sushi. Roll it in bamboo rolling mat and let cool.

This is an appeal on behalf of a group of food bloggers who are friends of Briana Brownlow @ Figs With Bri.

Bri was diagnosed with breast cancer two and half years ago. A mastectomy, chemotherapy and two years of relatively good health later, the cancer is back. It has metastasized to other parts of her body. At the age of 15, Bri lost her 41-year old mother to the disease. Now, she’s waging her own war against breast cancer. More about it here.

She is going through intensive chemo and other treatments and needs to focus single-mindedly on healing and finding what treatment works best for her. Her health insurance, unfortunately, does not cover holistic alternatives which she would like to try. Bri and her husband Marc have enough on their plates right now in addition to worrying about her medical bills.

The team organising the JUNE edition of CLICK at Jugalbandi has organised a fundraiser to help Bri and her family meet her out-of-pocket medical costs for ONE YEAR.

CLICK is a monthly theme-based photography contest hosted by Jugalbandi. This month’s theme is: YELLOW for Bri

Yellow is the colour of hope. Through the work of the LiveStrong Foundation, it has also come to signify the fight against cancer.

The entries can be viewed HERE. The deadline for entries is June 30, 2008. The fundraiser will extend until July 15, 2008.

The target amount is 12,000 U.S. dollars. We appeal to our fellow bloggers and readers to help us achieve this. Bri deserves a chance to explore all options, even if her insurance company thinks otherwise.

There’s a raffle with exciting prizes on offer. After viewing the list, you may make your donation HERE or at the Chip-In button on any participating site.

Your donation can be made securely through credit card or Pay Pal and goes directly to Bri’s account.

This month’s photo contest also has some prizes. Details HERE.

You can support this campaign by donating to the fundraiser, by participating in CLICK: the photo event, and by publicising this campaign.

I have decided to help by offering a raffle prize. I will ship a package with the following to the winner: Green pine needles syrup (I blogged about it here), European Cornel fruit jam, Ajvar, Mountain Rtanj plant herbal tea (blogged about here), a bag of dried ground red paprika seasoning, a package of Kulinat without additives (seasoning similar to Vegeta) and a handmade crocheted doily made by my grandma. All of the jarred products are premium quality, made by hand, by traditional recipes from the company Food Land line Bakina Tajna (Grandma’s Secret) with no additives and artificial colors.
