Unfortunately as many of you are aware the 2021 Roux for a Reason Cook-Off was cancelled. However, in an effort to continue to support our Mary Bird Perkins TGMC Cancer Center and to work within the current Covid 19 guidelines, we are very excited to announce that the Roux Crew has decided to host a golf tournament! The tournament with be held at Ellendale Country Club on June 7th. The tournament will also be filled with tons of great food and exciting activities for our golfers to enjoy and to stay true to our roots we will be working in a cook off element as well! If you are interested in golfing, participating, cooking, or sponsoring please reach out to your local Roux for a Reason member or reach us by email @ firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be updating the website and all social media platforms with current sponsorship opportunities ASAP. As always, thank you all so much for your continued support as we strive to better the lives of our neighbors who are fighting their battle!
FREE nutrition education and support that will allow patients to be in the best condition possible to FIGHT cancer.
We are excited to announce that our event proceeds will be dedicated to funding a comprehensive nutrition program at Mary Bird Perkins TGMC Cancer Center. The program will provide for a full-time Registered Dietitian on staff in the Cancer Center allowing every patient FREE access to education and nutrition support before and during their treatment. Traditional health insurance plans do not fund this type of care for oncology patients, so many patients aren’t seen by a dietitian until they are already facing malnutrition and their treatment plan is compromised. Through our joint efforts with MBP TGMC, we recognize that malnutrition during cancer treatment is a huge problem that needs to be faced with a proactive approach. Our goal is to help patients in the Bayou Region from the beginning, so that their bodies are in the best condition possible to FIGHT cancer.
Roux For A Reason is in honor of Dr. John C. Floyd and Mr. Benard Levy of Houma, Louisiana
