We created this cookie to celebrate the life of Olivia Kate Newsome for childhood cancer awareness month.
Olivia was diagnosed with osteosarcoma on October 24, 2016 at the age of 9. She underwent chemotherapy, multiple surgeries, and 2 relapses before she passed away on September 8, 2019. Olivia always had hope, not just for healing, although that was important; her ultimate hope came from knowing Jesus and his promise to never leave her. She knew whose she was and that heaven awaited her no matter what happened on earth. She was intelligent, loving, creative, sassy, thoughtful, empathetic, and insightful. She loved fashion, theater arts, and animals. We are blessed to be her family and share her story. This September, we are partnering with Kooky Cookie to raise funds for pediatric cancer. We have chosen Cure Search to be the recipient of these funds. Our sincerest prayer is that each of you will know Jesus and the hope only He can give this world. Love, The Newsomes
Olivia's cookie is chock full of many of the sweets that she loved to not only eat but also bake. Making brownies from scratch was one of her favorites to bake. Therefore, the base of this cookie tastes much like a brownie. Then we added mini peanut butter cups, chocolate chunks, marshmallows, peanuts and then stuffed with mini snickers bars in the middle. This cookie is a dessert like no other to celebrate a life well lived! Kooky Cookie will be donating $1 dollar from the sale of each cookie to Cure Search in Olivia's memory.
