Breast Cancer Awareness Month: How Twin Sisters Are Helping Families Battle Cancer
Twins, Joy and Judy are on a mission to help women battle breast cancer. They're offering healthy recipes, love, and support to brighten the days of families going through this very tough time. Judy, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012 and Joy, who helped her sister through her trying times, take their "family favorite" recipes and offer them with a healthy twist.
In this new episode of Twin Sisters, Love & Cooking, the twins surprise Autumn (who has recently been diagnosed), her husband Larry, and their 2 children by bringing them a delicious meal; their famous healthy twist Chicken Parmigiana with zoodles.
Autumn Edoff is a dance instructor and Larry is a three-time Grammy-nominated musician. Their passion for the arts led to the opening of 3 music schools in Connecticut & New York (Weston Music Lessons, Westport Home Music, and Westchester Home Music) that serve more than 500 students and employ 35 teachers.
Autumn and Larry have been struggling emotionally after Autumn was diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer in January. So their good friend Frank Miele suggested Joy and Judy visit the Edoff home to offer comfort, support, and a great meal. Judy knows, from her breast cancer battle, how important these things are to a family in crisis.
With the support of the twins, their family, and Autumn's fighting spirit, we know Autumn will win her battle!This HooplaHa original video was produced by Tracy Chevrier, shot by Johnny Perez, and edited by Kellie Sieban.
