Kneaders' Elephant-Shaped Sugar Cookies

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and Kneaders Bakery & Café will be selling cookies in the shape of the largest land animal, with all of the proceeds going to cancer researcher Dr. Joshua Schiffman at the Huntsman Cancer Institute. While the elephant design may seem random, it actually has a unique significance, because Schiffman's research focuses on the p53 protein, which has been found to help prevent cancer in elephants. Humans have p53 proteins too, but some children who develop cancer have only half the average number—a discovery Schiffman believes might help prevent the disease in humans.

Every cookie sold brings Schiffman a little bit closer to finding the truth, and since the cookies are adorable and probably delicious, this is a deal you won't want to miss.
