CHOA patients team up on new charitable cookbook

- Looking for a meaningful gift to give this holiday season? Well, a group of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta patients may have an idea for you.

Their new charity cookbook, “Cooking for a Cure,” was created to raise money for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

The book features 35 recipes from current and former CHOA patients who teamed up to create meals, appetizers and desserts. From recipes for special doggy treats to yummy slimy creations, the book includes an assortment of themes and flavors.

The cookbook will also showcase heartwarming profiles on the contributing chefs and their inspiring stories, including 4-year-old Trip Halstead, the Georgia boy who suffered severe brain injuries when a tree limb fell on him outside his daycare center in Winder, and Hannah Bauer, the very first heart patient at CHOA’s Sibley Heart Center.

Author Kathy Qualey runs Zelix Zone for Kids, a non-profit organization that supports special needs children. She said she is excited to partner with CHOA on the project.

“It’s just a wonderful gift to give to a child: to have fun in the kitchen with them,” she said. “But to also give back to children’s healthcare.”
