Elephants have 100 times as many cells as humans and they should be 100 times more likely to get cancer, but cancer is rare in elephants. Elephants have 40 cancer-fighting proteins in their DNA, whereas humans only have two.

Why Kneaders Cares
Our founders grandson, Tanner, had been diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma at age 13 in 2015 and it was heartbreaking. Although Tanner is now cancer-free, we will never forget the profound challenge of surviving an overwhelming and rare disease. Laughter, sports, activities with friends and Tanner’s typical teenage life turned into facing the possibility that he might not win his fight. To address the increased need for pediatric cancer funding, Kneaders Bakery & Cafe is proud to support Huntsman Cancer Institute and Dr. Schiffman with HOPE.
