Jodi Aufdencamp went in for a routine mammogram around the holidays and found out she had breast cancer.

"I didn't have a reason to think anything was wrong with me," Aufdencamp said. "On Christmas Eve, they called and said you're going to have to come in after Christmas."

Aufdencamp is currently undergoing radiation therapy at The James Cancer Hospital.

"The people at The James have been wonderful. I'm 43. Right now, I feel a lot older than that, but I'm hoping I can beat it. I'm keeping my fingers crossed."

Some of the radiation technicians that treat Aufdencamp live in Hilliard, and they have a Pelotonia bicycling team called "Rays for a Cure!" On Saturday (Oct. 2), some of the techs will be at the Mama Mimi's Pizza in Hilliard at 6304 Scioto Darby Rd., "to hand out free food and talk to customers," Aufdencamp said.

From noon to 9 p.m., the Hilliard Mama Mimi's will donate a portion of each sale to "Rays for a Cure!" There will be free samples, door prizes and drawings to win free pizza or lasagna for a year.

Upper Arlington residents Jodi and her husband Jeff Aufdencamp founded Mama Mimi's Take 'N Bake Pizza a decade ago in Columbus.

"We have a few locations, and this is our first one in Hilliard," Aufdencamp said. "We opened up at the end of August at Darby Creek Center. We love the space, and love Hilliard. So far the first few weeks have been phenomenal. We've gotten a great reception from the customers and people who live around there."

The Hilliard location of Mama Mimi's was formerly occupied by national take and bake chain Papa Murphy's.

"We took a little pride going into a space the big guy couldn't make work," Aufdencamp said.

The other Mama Mimi's shops held a similar fundraiser earlier in the summer before the Hilliard store opened. The Pelotonia race occurred in August, but is accepting donations into October, Aufdencamp said.

"This is going to be our grand opening open house," Aufdencamp said of Saturday's fundraiser. "Our business is actually all carry out, but we're going to be cooking and feeding people all day long."
