”Help Whip Cancer” This May with The Pampered Chef.

We all know someone affected by breast cancer. Now you can make a difference alongside the Pampered Chef! Help save lives May 1-31 with the 2010 Help Whip Cancer® (HWC) campaign!



Join The Pampered Chef in celebrating women everywhere this May. In honor of Mother’s Day, more than 40,000 Pampered Chef Consultants are harnessing the power of pink, and spreading the message of breast cancer awareness through the Help Whip Cancer campaign.
