MAGIC PEAS

The BRCA Responder


Joelle Burnette has some Magic Peas and I want some.

Where did she get them? Did she get them from previously working on Capitol Hill? Did she get them from her mom; also a fine artist, always busy with things, and who just gets "these ideas"?

Or perhaps from her sister Renee, Joelle's protector who died in a car crash when she was only 19 years old. Joelle was just 12 at the time.

Joelle Burnette is a reporter and she carries around her little notebook and writes things down exactly as they happen.
CANCER TIME BOMB
She did this with her previous book CANCER TIME BOMB, HOW THE BRCA GENE STOLE MY TITS AND EGGS. Burnette had her handy little notebook with her at Macy's while getting her first post mastectomy bra. So when her Aunt said,"Oh, I don't know why you are so upset?" Burnette wrote it down and the story made it into her hilarious, heartfelt Cancer Time Bomb.  

So what's with these Magic Peas?  They are beautiful, glorious, and magical--and like I said, I want some.
Magic Peas and Two Front Teethis Burnette's new project also from her reporter's notebook…but based on a story with her own daughter Sophie and getting her to eat her vegetables. It is a sweet tale about Zoe who loses her baby teeth, then learns to enjoy healthy snacks while eagerly awaiting her new teeth to grow in. In the story, at bedtime, Zoe asks her mother how she can make her teeth grow in more quickly. Each evening, her mother suggests she eat a different healthy snack the following day.

Burnette is beyond talented. Her 20 oil paintings for Magic Peas are equally as vibrant as her humor in Cancer Time Bomb.

There are less than 3 days left on this truly talented BRCA sistah's  kickstarter campaignfor PEAS. If Burnette does not reach meet the total goal…she will not receive any of the funding that has been pledged. 

I absolutely love the artwork, story, and adore the snacks and sides activity pages.

I support all things BRCA and feel it's important to support all of our fellow BRCA sistahs and mistahs in all of their creative endeavors of spirit, stories, and song. It's simply good BRCA karma.

More than that, of course it's important for ALL kids to eat as healthily as possible. However, for kids of parents that have high risk for cancer or carry a BRCA gene mutation; they may just inherit that high cancer risk or that BRCA gene mutation too. While we can't take away that inherent risk we may have passed on to our children, we can do our best as parents to give them every possible extra advantage in life. My kids need that extra advantage. 
So, I want some Magic Peas. 

"All I am saying…is give peas a chance."
