February 18 -- as in today -- is Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day.

OK! There is no need to tell me twice!

AND it's for a good cause? Really?

A family in Minnesota created the day for cancer research, Detroit's WJBK-TV Fox 2 reports. So, that makes it perfectly acceptable.

According to WJBK-TV Fox 2:

A family from Forest Lake, Minnesota, is overwhelmed by the worldwide support they're getting for “Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day” – a day they created to honor their daughter, Malia, and other kids who have lost their lives to cancer, to support the kids fighting cancer, and to celebrate the survivors.

"Nine-year-old Malia Grace passed away after a long fight with cancer on Dec. 7, 2010. One thing she loved was having ice cream for breakfast so her family remembered her each year on her birthday for doing just that.

"Last year, someone suggested that eating ice cream for breakfast should become a national holiday to honor all children who have battled childhood cancer. On a whim, the family created a graphic to share on social media to spread the word."

And now they have.

I will take mine in a sandwich form please! Spread the word!
