I came to SHARE 4four years ago diagnosed with Metastatic Breast cancer, I was afraid and alone feeling no one knew my pain. I was directed to a support group who later became my second family. SHARE is and always will be considered my family because when you see your sisters they know you by your first name and there is never any quarrels about who does what. WE ARE ALL EQUAL..........

Just being able to share the very personal effects of cancer and treatment helped relieve my stress about the unkown. Sharing information was the main reason I joined SHARE but the very personal way that members reached out to me, helping me cope with the uncertainty of remission is what I treasure most. A friend of mine who was also ill said she would not join a group because it is so depressing when a member dies from the condition that she is trying to beat. Knowing that an individual you got to know at meetings had a relapse or did not make it even after remission is depressing, but hearing from other members, alive, and living well with this disease lifted my spirits and gave me hope.

This organization has helped countless numbers of women with breast or ovarian cancer. It provides women with a sense of empowerment in dealing with this complex disease by offering help on so many levels, such as providing information about current research and how to cope with the impact of surgery and treatment. The thing about SHARE is that one derives benefit by both giving and receiving help.

I have been involved with SHARE for over ten years. I have been diagnosed with breast cancer twice and did not have the benefit of support that SHARE has to offer the first time. It was after becoming a volunteer on the hotline that I got my 2nd diagnosis and could not have asked for more support - it gave me emotinal support from women who had walked in those shoes, and practical support (when to shave my head, buy a wigs etc.). I continue to be a volunteer on the breast cancer hotline and am grateful to be able to use my experience to hold out a hand to other women. Thank you SHARE.

Through SHARE, I was able to get support and information from other women going through treatment as well as expert facilitators who had already been in our shoes. It was an open, collaborative, positive place where we could "share" and help each other. It was comforting to know I had many of the same questions and concerns other women did. SHARE was also a great resource for information -- both their library and referrals to experts.

I learned about SHARE during my hospital stay for a modified mastectomy and reconstructive surgery in 1997. SHARE was truly an anchor for me during the years immediately following my breast cancer diagnosis. It was so important and meaningful to be surrounded by other women who were "in the same boat", physically and emotionally. I actually participated in THREE groups, and all of my group leaders were outstanding. Through SHARE I learned about the "sentinel node dissection" procedure, a method of tracking cancer cell migration without removing a cluster of underarm lymph nodes. Also I learned of physicians in the NYC area who pioneered this procedure. I attended lectures about the newest techniques in breast conservation and reconstructive surgery. I borrowed materials from SHARE's library of books, videotapes and articles. Eventually I volunteered for SHARE, helping with office work and with SHARE-A-WALK. I secured a screening location for the film "Out of Africa", which SHARE aired for a fundraising function a few years a go. I continue to donate to SHARE, and I have a good friend who I met in one of my support groups. It's wonderful to know that SHARE is there for me if I should need its direct support in the future.

SHARE became a part of my life when my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1993. My mother needed to connect with women that understood what she was going through. My mom joined a group in Harlem. SHARE helped my mother understand cancer. My mother in turn helped her children understand cancer. SHARE members helped my mom and her children to not be afraid. My mom passed in 1997. In 1998, several members of my family proudly participated in our first SHARE walk-a-thon, in honor of our mother, Elaine M. Johnson. After that first walk-a-thon experience, I began recruiting friends and family to walk with me. Words can express the joy I felt walking every year. SHARE is a wonderful organization that not only helps women with breast and ovarian cancer, they also support family and friends of women with breast and ovarian cancer. My family wouldn't have adjusted as well without SHARE. Thank you SHARE.

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer I knew nothing much about it. My oncologist told me about SHARE. It was very helpful to know there was a network of people who were going through something like what I was. I started with a support group. I fount the yoga classes with Roberta Shine particularly helpful as well as some of the presentations, especially the "Fireside chats" I've not been able to be involved recently and miss those contacts

I am a two-time survivor of breast cancer. The first was in 1997 when I was diagnosed with invasive, aggressive DCIS. My surgeon is on the Board of SHARE, and I picked up a leaflet in her office. I had important decisions to make, and was completely overwhelmed. The hot line volunteers were wonderful support, and referred me to resources. Also the educational seminars helped keep me informed about the disease and the treatment options. At the time SHARE also had many wellness programs like yoga, meditation, reiki, support groups,etc. All of their services are free, and available in outer boroughs as well. Most of the staff consists of dedicated volunteers, almost all of whom are breast or ovarian cancer survivors. They have to be commended for the excellent service they provide with very limited resources.
