Myeloma March Cookies

September 23, 2012

Back in June I did a post on these cookies and mentioned that I’d be telling you more about Jackie Seaton’s latest project.  Today I’m delighted to share with you what he’s been up to.

When Jackie was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma last year it was just before the annual Myeloma March.  He did not hestitate to join in that march and raised thousands of dollars for Myeloma research.  A year later, Jackie has undergone a stem cell transplant and is doing exceptionally well.  When thinking of the upcoming 2012 Myeloma March, he decided that he wanted to do something a little different to raise funds and awareness for this disease.

With 2012 being the 160th year of our local Perth Citizens’ Band, Jackie contacted a  friend of his, retired music teacher Jack Hurd and asked him if he would compose a march.  The Myeloma March was written and today The Perth Band will perform a free concert in the park organized by Jackie.  The concert will end with the Perth Band performing the world debut of The Myeloma March.

I was honoured to have been asked by Jackie to create some cookies to hand out at this event and I came up with The Myeloma March cookie.

The logo is that of the Multiple Myeloma March and I thought adding the musical notes incorporated the overall theme for this event taking place at 2:00 p.m. today.

If you are in the area, why not pop over to the Perth Bandshell and enjoy a free concert in the park?  You may even find yourself munching on a cookie while tapping your feet to the music.

 

Note:  No donations will be taken at the free concert but if you’d care to help Jackie in his fundraising efforts, please click on the poster on my sidebar.
