Hope Shines for Mets' media relations director Shannon Forde

Hope Shines for Shannon benefits a friend, mother, wife, and truly wonderful person.

Shannon (Dalton) Forde, a 41-year-old senior media relations director for the Mets, was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer on Aug. 2. Ford is undergoing treatment, but still continues to work full-time while also tending to her family. She and her husband John have two children, Nicholas (4) and Kendall (2).

Friends and family have joined up with both The Daniel P. Ryan Foundation and The Chic Charity Club to raise money and support Shannon. A benefit dinner will be held in Woodland Park, N.J., on Nov. 1 with former Mets pitcher Ron Darling as emcee. To support Shannon's cause or attend the charity dinner, please visit:
