Jason’s Deli campaign supports cancer fight

Jason’s Deli is featuring stories about its employees, their families and their battles with cancer on bottles of water available for purchase in more than 200 Jason’s Deli restaurants across the country.

For the next year, 10 cents from the sale of every Jason’s Deli bottle of water will be donated to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center for cancer research, prevention and treatment.

“Jason’s Deli is a family business and our employees are part of our family. Unfortunately, our family is affected by cancer like many others, so our decision to support MD Anderson is personal,” said Jason’s Deli founder and CEO Joe Tortorice Jr. “Our employees and their family members who valiantly fight cancer inspire us. We’re honoring them by sharing their stories. And ... we’re letting everyone know how important it is to support MD Anderson in its mission to eliminate cancer.”

WASHINGTON — The Food and Drug Administration has approved a stronger, single-ingredient version of the painkiller hydrocodone, the widely-abused prescription medicine for chronic pain.

The agency said it approved the pill Zohydro for patients with pain that requires “daily, around-the-clock, long-term treatment” that cannot be addressed with other drugs.
