25th Anniversary / Outreach - Spike Mendelsohn Chef, Good Stuff Eatery                       "On your 25th Anniversary we must take a moment to reflect on the very important work you do of researching and educating the public on the prevention of cancer. My grandfather, Sunny Nakis, was diagnosed and unfortunately passed away at a young age from cancer. Without a doubt, had we been better educated on cancer prevention it would have made a difference. I would like to congratulate you on the positive impact you have made in our society for many families since 1985. The importance of your organization cannot be stressed enough, it is crucial.  It has been a pleasure to work with such an excellent group of dedicated, kind and brilliant people. Continue the fantastic work!" The Foundation was delighted to have Spike and the Good Stuff Eatery partner with us for our first annual Prevent Cancer Foundation 5K. Editor’s Note: This post is  part of the 25th Anniversary Testimonials Initiative.
