Tonnie Rozier, who was on Cupcake Wars on the Food Network, has created a ‘cancer fighting cupcake’ which is filled with berries.

“We have an audacious goal of making $100,000 and it’s going to be quite a scene. Tonnie has created a limited edition cupcake called the ‘Very Berry’ and it’s in the spirit of American Cancer Society’s antioxidant ingredients in your baking,” said Gross. “Let me tell you, I am not a cook, but I do really believe that I could make this at home.”

“Unfortunately, there’s probably hard-pressed to find one person who hasn’t been touched, their circle has not been touched, by someone struck with cancer,” said Gross. “And it’s a very important cause of our time and having the opportunity to roll up your sleeves and give back and how terrific would it be if, in our lifetime, we saw a cure for cancer!”
