Bakery fights childhood cancer with cookies

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and Kneaders Bakery and Cafe will be selling elephant shaped cookies to raise money to fight childhood cancer. The elephant shape was inspired by groundbreaking research at the Huntsman Cancer Institute in Utah. Dr. Josh Schiffman has been researching elephant DNA and studying why elephants don’t get cancer. ­Researchers are hoping proteins found in elephants can be used to fight cancer cells in humans. Visit hope.kneaders.com to support.

Our Government

White House


President Trump and Vice President Pence led meetings with the Cabinet and senior members of the Administration to discuss ongoing Federal support for Hurricane Harvey response and recovery. The President continued to stress his expectation that all departments and agencies stay fully committed to supporting the Governors of Texas and Louisiana and his number one priority of saving lives. He reminded everyone that search and rescue efforts will transition to mass care, restoring power, providing life-sustaining necessities for the population that sheltered in place, and economic recovery.

Colorado Governor

We have been talking about a bipartisan approach to improve the nation’s healthcare system. Together with Governor John Kasich , we’ve agreed on a framework to stabilize individual health insurance markets. This is the first step (BIG STEP) to controlling costs and expanding access to care. We’re so excited to share our ideas with the Republican and Democratic governors who’ve been part of our coalition, Hickenlooper said.

Denver Mayor

The ability of local government to protect and serve all people improves when community members feel secure in making complaints either as victims or as witnesses to crimes, regardless of their legal status. Through this ordinance and the steps we are taking, Denver is building trusting relationships with our immigrant and refugee communities to improve the security of our city and to help the most vulnerable populations thrive.
