Mothers, daughters, sisters, grandmothers, friends. A woman touched by cancer is a special kind of survivor. When it’s ovarian cancer, the sad fact is that oftentimes the signs and symptoms result in a late diagnosis. And those who have perished leave behind a legacy and urgent message. Please, not one more.
A group of lady chefs is working hard to keep that from happening through Turn Up the Heat, a women chef event that raises funds for Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance in a show of faith that everyone can do something. The events in Washington, D.C., are so successful, organizers have added an evening in Boston taking place on May 8.
Participating chefs include Christina Larson (Bar Mezzana), Hannah F. Lurier (City Winery Boston), Sara Markey (Field & Vine), Kristen Rummel (Honeycomb Creamery), Rachael Collins (Juliet), Katrina Jazayeri (Juliet), Kayla Quigley (Our Fathers), Andi Wolfgang (nuFudge), Raleigh Strott (Pammy’s Cambridge), Mareena McKenzie (Strip T’s), Lydia Reichert (Sycamore), Vicki Lee Boyajian (Vicki Lee’s), Kimberly Chappell (Vicki Lee’s), Melissa Motta (Vicki Lee’s), and Julie King (Villa Mexico Cafe).
