Cook For Your Life started in 2007 after founder, Ann Ogden, was in treatment for her second cancer diagnosis, triple negative breast cancer. Ann took a break from her successful career in fashion to focus on her treatment. Suddenly immersed in the world of hospitals and cancer treatment, she became aware of how little her chemo buddies knew about healthy food. Growing up with an Italian mother from a family of chefs and a father who was a Master Baker she was easily able to adapt recipes to help her cope with side effects and eat well even on the worst days. But for her treatment friends it was a different story. She started giving cooking tips and advice, which eventually led to her free hands-on cooking classes.
The October 12 class is limited to breast patients at Mount Sinai. Patients should contact Chelsey Wisotsky via email CHELSEY.WISOTSKY@MOUNTSINAI.ORG. Space is limited. Participants must register as no walk-ins are accepted.
