October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and a Tampa bakery is looking to help a young woman with breast cancer by selling milkshakes.
Bake’n Babes is donating money through the sale of its popular “Freak Shakes” to Victoria Burnham, a 25-year-old diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. Bake’n Babes is selling a “Think Pink” Freak Shake through Sunday, October 13, with all proceeds going straight to Burnham.
The bakery recently made headlines when it made a Freak Shake in honor of Lizzo. The rising singer and songwriter who earned plenty of accolades with her hit song “Truth Hurts” visited the shop in September to try it.
Bake’n Babes is using that notoriety is has received to benefit Burnham. “We decided to use this platform since we have everyone's attention,” says owner Julie Curry.
The bakery is sharing breast cancer survivor stories on Instagram in hopes of gaining support for the cause.
