A Second Helping of Life: A HUGE SUCCESS!

A Second Helping of Life gets better every year. For our 12th annual event, we raised close to half a million dollars, more than ever before, enabling us to continue to serve women and their families affected by breast and ovarian cancers. We're so appreciative of the chefs, sous chefs, honorees, beverage sponsors, and supporters who made the event such a success! Special thanks to Pat Battle for hosting the event and to Nicho Lowry for serving as auctioneer.

This year was very special, as the chefs dedicated the night to Chef Gina DePalma, who has been participating in A Second Helping of Life for many years. Gina is facing ovarian cancer, and we are thinking of her and hoping the best for her. It is for women like Gina that SHARE exists.
Clinical Trials Available for BRCA+ Patients
With new clinical trials available for BRCA+ patients, it makes more sense now than ever to get tested for these gene mutations. Learn more about these clinical trials and the expanded guidelines for testing here.
Question of the Month

October's Question: 
What do you think about campaigns promoting "awareness" of breast and ovarian cancer?

Our blogger Megan Rutherford compiles answers from several SHARE Helpline volunteers, and then offers her own opinion! What's yours? Read the post and leave a comment.

October: Special Features 
Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day -- October 13
Throughout the year and especially during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, metastatic breast cancer needs and deserves more attention, research dollars, and support than it currently gets. That's why the community recognizes October 13 as Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day.

Every day, SHARE is devoting more resources than ever to supporting women with metastatic disease. Here's what we're doing:
  • 9 telephone support meetings every month for women with metastatic disease  
  • Educational programs and webinars for women with metastatic disease
  • Leadership in Metastatic Breast Cancer Alliance (SHARE's Christine Benjamin is Information Task Force Chair and a member of the Executive Committee)
  • Participation in #CountusKnowusJoinus program
  • Participation in #Itsabouttime program
On Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day, join us outside WABC's studio in Times Square to bring attention to metastatic breast cancer. For more information, email Christine Benjamin at cbenjamin@sharecancersupport.org.
