Just days after Jane Alexander of Cataloochee learned of her terminal cancer diagnosis, she set out on a mission to complete one more project — a cookbook to include recipes from her own kitchen as well as contributions from her many close friends.

Not only was the cookbook project a meaningful way for Alexander and her friends to spend more time together in her final months, it was a way for her to give back to a community she dearly loved.

Alexander decided to give the publishing rights to REACH of Haywood County and all the proceeds will go to benefit the organization’s mission of helping victims of domestic violence.

REACH received a total of $10,000 from donations made in memory of Jane as well as sales of the cookbook to be used toward  the many services we provide our clients.
