Team Towanda Cookbooks

Team Towanda Foundation (TTF) is the ultimate group of girlfriends who came together to help a friend through a breast cancer diagnosis and the aftermath that followed. They formed a “Casserole Cavalry” whereby an army of eighty women provided meals, cards, flowers, transportation, child care and love to their friend during the six months of her treatment.

TTF has two books that may benefit women diagnosed with breast cancer, “Pink Ribbon Warriors” and their friends.

The Charge of the Casserole Cavalry: The Official Towanda Cookbook contains the recipes for those delicious meals. Friends sent us their recipes, along with support stories and tips. It became an inspirational manual of sorts… something along the lines of a “How to Help Your Girlfriend Have Cancer” guide. This book strives to show how to help friends who have been diagnosed with a serious disease. Since 2002, over 15,000 copies of the book have been ordered and shared.

Our latest book is named Towanda Celebrates with her Bosom Buddies: Another Towanda Cookbook. TTF believes you should celebrate EVERYTHING. This book picks up ten years later where our first book ends and is full of new recipes and ideas for celebrations. It includes uplifting quotes and stories and even a section of humorous, yet informative emails between two lifelong friends, one a survivor, the other a new warrior.

Both books are available locally and here on our website. All TTF proceeds and projects benefit medically underserved women in our community by providing mammograms, ultrasounds and other breast-related services.

Buy "The Set" of both cookbooks for $20 and save $10!
