ELEBRATING the release of her second book, Lift, Kelly Corrigan credited breastcancer.org as her first call for help and a go-to source for information about research and medications.

Cynthia Lufkin and Dr. Marisa Weiss hosted the book party at Doubles in the Sherry Netherland Hotel.

Lufkin is a philanthropist, breast cancer survivor and advocate. Throughout her cancer journey, she empowered herself and made it her mission to turn this into a positive experience by dedicating herself to helping women facing the burden of this dreaded disease. She was full of praise for BreastCancer.org and Dr. Weiss’s efforts.

Dr. Weiss, a breast cancer oncologist in Philadelphia, is regarded as a visionary for her innovative approach to informing, empowering and treating patients. She created Breastcancer.org in response to her patients’ need for reliable information and treatment options.

Corrigan charmed the crowd with her winning personality. She read two short chapters from her books, The Middle Place, a memoir about her triumph over the disease, and Lift.

Corrigan is also well known for her essay about "women’s remarkable capacity to support each other, to laugh together, and to endure," which her publisher videotaped and posted on YouTube. The video has received over 4 million views.

Wendy Carduner, the chatelaine of Doubles, and her staff served wine and hors d’oeuvres to a group that included Tory Burch, who a week earlier had been named Mother of the Year by the American Cancer Society; financier and environmental advocate Dan Lufkin; Anne Sutherland Fuchs, chair of the Commission on Women's Issues for New York City; Grace Hightower DeNiro; Pamela Fiori, editor-in-chief of Town & Country; Joanne Lipman, a former editor at Conde Nast and the Wall Street Journal.

Also Dr. Catherine Manno, head of pediatrics at NYU Medical Center; CNN’s Felicia Taylor; Kinga Lampert; The Worth Collection’s Saundra Smith, plus Barbara Stovall Smith, Marilyn Machlowitz, Ann Keating, Dianne Kenney, Dr. Eva Andersson-Dubin, Jill Brooke, Katy Thompson, Lauri Panopoulos, Lauren Thierry Watkins, Lee Fryd, Leslie Laredo, Nancy Ertag-Brand, Patty Raynes, Somers Farkas and Stephanie Krieger.

There were four other breast cancer survivor/authors in the gathering. Rochelle Hirsch wrote Lumps and Bumps. ABC News 20/20 dynamo Geralyn Lucas is the author of Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy. Marisa Acocella Marchetto wrote The Cancer Vixen. Lee Woodruff wrote In an Instant and Perfectly Imperfect: A Life in Progress with her husband, ABC anchor Bob Woodruff.
