A Second Helping of Life Brings Woman Celebrity Chefs Together to Raise Money for Ovarian and Breast Cancer

The 15th Anniversary of A Second Helping of Life, the annual tasting benefit where famous female chefs serve their signature tastes in support of women facing ovarian and breast cancers, will be held on Monday, September 17th, at Chelsea Piers. This year’s event will feature Barbara Sibley from La Palapa Cocina Mexicana as the executive chef of 30 of New York City’s finest and Tamsen Fadal, Emmy awardwinning anchor for WPIX 11 and dedicated breast cancer advocate, will host

Also in attendance will be Jane E. Brody, best-selling author and personal health columnist for The New York Times, who will be honored for her contribution in leading the discourse around breast and ovarian cancers. Since joining the paper in 1965 as full-time specialist in medicine and biology, Brody has earned the title of “High Priestess of Health” from Time magazine as well as numerous awards for journalistic excellence.

For more than four decades, SHARE has provided dedicated and experienced support for women affected by ovarian and breast cancers as well as their families. They’ve operated survivor-led helplines and supports groups, offered support services in English and Spanish, and provided free education from top cancer experts. In the last year alone, they have reached 150,000 people with their programs across the country, including those in underserved communities, to create better health care, an improved quality of life, and a cure for these diseases.

“Cancer does not discriminate. Women of all ages and backgrounds have been diagnosed with breast and ovarian cancers,” said SHARE Executive Director Jackie Reinhard. A Second Helping of Life brings women together with the power of the SHARE community and generates funds to improve the lives of women with breast and ovarian cancer nationwide.”

A Second Helping of Life further upholds its mission of women supporting women by pairing each chef with top women in the world of theatre, radio, television and journalism as their sous chef. The walk-around tasting will highlight a diverse range of cuisines from the top toques such as Barbara Sibley’s Braised Brisket Barbacoa Tacos, Rebecca Charles’ infamous Lobster Rolls, Angie Mar’s delicious Truffle Burgers, Amanda Cohen’s Shanghai Shoots, Roxanne Spruance Pork Belly, Sara Jenkins Porchetta Sandwich and Alex Guarnaschelli, Heirloom Tomato Lasagna.
