Nadia’s Cherry Pie Helps Give Hope to Cancer Patients

May 30, 2014

If you’ve ever browsed our dessert menu, you may have noticed one titled Nadia’s Cherry Pie. This dessert is very near and dear to my heart. The pie is named in honor of Ted’s mom, Nadia Collier.

Nadia lived a very colorful life. She was born in Ukraine, and at a young age she escaped with her family as refugees on a cargo ship that, unknown to them, was headed to Australia. She was working as a model when she met Ted’s father, who was vacationing in Australia. They fell in love, married, and she moved to his farm in Greenville, Illinois. I am told that Nadia was an amazing, well-read woman who loved classical music.

Sadly, she was diagnosed with melanoma and succumbed to cancer after a yearlong battle in 2004. To celebrate her life and acknowledge those who are fighting the same battle Nadia did, we donated 50 percent of every sale of Nadia’s Cherry Pie to the Siteman Cancer Center, a nationally recognized leader in cancer treatment, research, and prevention.

While we’re known for our pizza pies, we hope you’ll try a slice of Nadia’s Cherry Pie the next time you dine with us!
