After having worked in the banking industry for nearly a decade, I decided to pursue my lifelong dream of professional cooking. I am the owner and operator of Martelli’s Kitchen; a company dedicated to sharing our passion for food with countless others.
Being nominated for Man of the Year is a true honour and privilege. It is a cause that touches close to home. A few years ago, my friend’s daughter, Emma, was diagnosed with Leukemia.I was at a loss for words when I heard the news. Forty percent of all childhood cancers are blood cancers, and as a new father, this statistic is terrifying.
Thankfully, Emma is a cancer survivor and thriving as a 7 year old should be!
The word HELP is defined in many ways; to give assistance, to support, to improve, to relieve. There is no greater feeling than the feeling of helping others. My goal throughout this campaign is to bring my community together, spread awareness and ultimately: to HELP in the fight to end blood cancer.
