Sheryl Crow teams up with Back in the Swing on July 14th to celebrate the launch of the Back in the Swing Cookbook
THE KANSAS CITY STAR MADE A MISTAKE IN THEIR THURSDAY, MAY 30 EDITION OF “PREVIEW”. THE MENTION OF SHERYL CROW’S COMING TO KANSAS CITY FOR A JULY 14, 2013 BENEFIT CONCERT WAS INCORRECT. SHERYL CROW’S FABULOUS BENEFIT CONCERT FOR US WAS IN JULY 2012.
Grammy award-winning artist Sheryl Crow is coming to Kansas City for a Summer Celebration benefiting the grassroots, national nonprofit organization, Back in the Swing USA®. The legendary musician, mother and Missouri native, who is also a breast cancer survivor, will perform select songs from her legendary career and share personal reflections from the heart.
The event will be held Saturday July 14, 2012 on the campus of the Johnson County Community College, 12345 College Blvd, Overland Park, Kansas. Sponsors are invited to a pre-party at 6:00 pm in the Nerman Museum of Art to sample the new, cool tastes adapted from The Back In The Swing Cookbook, provided By Lon Lane’s Inspired Occasions. Contributors to the Cookbook will be on hand to lend their voice to highlight the over 500 research-based, lifestyle “recipes” for joyful, healthy living, ranging from exercise to meditation, and 120 powerful recipes from appetizers to desserts, colorfully presented throughout the book.
The Summer Celebration, starring Sheryl Crow will begin at 8 pm at the Carlsen Center, just across a short path from the Museum, on the campus of Johnson County Community College.
After the performance, guests are invited to savor dessert indulgences, also inspired by the new Back in the Swing Cookbook.
At this time, attendance is available through sponsorship only. Proceeds from the event will support local cancer survivorship education, clinical care and academic medical research.
Honorary Chairmen are Sherry and Gary Forsee and Merry and Ed Prostic.
Sponsors will be among the first to own The Back in the Swing Cookbook, published by Kansas City-based Andrews McMeel Publishing. Written by Barbara and food writer Judith Fertig, The Back in the Swing Cookbook: Recipes for Eating and Living Well Every Day After Breast Cancer ($29.99, Andrews McMeel Publishing, August 7, 2012) is a life-affirming book full of 150 feel-good, easy-to-prepare recipes. As the woman’s guide to making delicious meals and embracing a positive lifestyle, The Back in the Swing Cookbook will make the mind, body and spirit feel energized and empowered.
Created by the national grassroots nonprofit organization Back in the Swing USA®, the book contains new information that answers the No. 1 question on many women’s minds: “How do I safely and smartly prevent, and get back in the swing of life after, breast cancer?”
“In The Back in the Swing Cookbook, all the research is done, from fabulous foods to eat and recipes to prepare, to options to get you moving and ways to feel good every day,” said Rachel S. Beller, MS, RD, Founder of the Beller Nutritional Institute, and nutritionist for NBC’s The Biggest Loser.

Back in the Swing USA® is a grassroots, national nonprofit organization dedicated to improving and protecting well-being after breast cancer by supporting education for consumers and healthcare providers; personalized, comprehensive, survivorship clinical healthcare; and academic medical research. When Back in the Swing began in 2000, no comprehensive, personalized, integrative medical services for breast cancer survivors existed. This past August, 12 years later, the Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) announced that a survivorship care plan and survivorship support are among the standards of care required for hospital cancer programs to receive accreditation.
