About Us

Hearty At Home

Hearty at Home is a food blog presented by East Georgia Cancer Coalition. Our initiative, Recipes for Ribbons, is focused on providing hearty & nutritious recipes, cooking tips, and dining advice to individuals and families that are accessible, affordable, and appetizing! We encourage healthy lifestyle practices at home and in public, as well as community support. 

The East Georgia Cancer Coalition (EGCC) is a regional cancer organization anchored by Augusta University, The University of Georgia, and the medical community. The Coalition serves 53 counties of East Georgia. We believe that lives can be saved by education about cancer prevention and by early detection. Started in 2003, the Coalition is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization.

Mission: The mission of the East Georgia Cancer Coalition is to reduce the number of cancer deaths within the coalition region by ensuring that all people receive cancer prevention education and information, early detection, referrals and follow-ups for appropriate treatment and benefit from cancer research discoveries.

Vision: We envision a coalition region in which there are no deaths from cancer due to a lack of cancer prevention education and information, early detection, appropriate treatment, and/or access to research discoveries.
