In my work with Family Reach, an organization that helps families battling cancer with out-of-pocket medical expenses and everyday living costs, I learned of a striking statistic: The number one cause of financial bankruptcy for families is paying for the costs associated with cancer.
This statistic is one that Family Reach helps to combat every day, and one of the key drivers of its upcoming Cooking Live event. Created by chef Ming Tsai four years ago, Cooking Live brings together some of the nation's top celebrity chefs to raise awareness of the impact of cancer on families and to cook for some of the families involved with Family Reach.
Cooking Live takes place on Monday, November 2, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. ET. Renowned chefs Masaharu Morimoto, Bryce Shuman, Ken Oringer and Johnny Iuzinni will join host Ming Tsai and celebrity sous chefs Emily Blunt and John Krasinski as they prepare a five-course meal while addressing the serious needs Family Reach addresses on a daily basis.
