I "discovered" SHARE in 1992. At this point in my life I had healed and wiped the tears from my cancer diagnosis. However, when I visited SHARE I met with such a wonderful, generous, helpful group of women, that I decided I wanted to work with this organization and help spread the word about SHARE. I have worked with SHARE since then, doing outreach, advocacy and helping to organize the SHARE-A-Walk. I pray that SHARE will be available to more women until this dreadful disease is vanquished.

I do volunteer work at Share. When a woman calls our Help Line, they want to speak to
someone who has had BC, people will listen when they know you have walked the
walk. I have heard dozens of women cry on the phone , women of all ages, young women
with small children, at the
time of a diagnosis they need reassurance, hope and that is
what we provide, at the end of a call, that can last an hour or longer, a sense of relief
and gratitude is what I hear, I wrap up my calls by telling them, just so you know my
diagnose was 19 years ago, I can't see their faces but I can feel their smile
on the phone and in my heart. Volunteering is a way of giving back as a survivor.

I've had first hand experience with SHARE as a recipient of services, a board and staff member and now as a volunteer and in each of those capacities I've recognized how extraordinary this organization is. For women and men newly affected by breast or ovarian cancer, information and resources provided by someone who uniquely understand the issues because they've been there, is invaluable. The support that comes from being able to give voice to your issues in a safe environment with up to date information is enormously empowering and allows those affected to deal with their lives more effectively and with an inceased sense of empowerment.

Breast cancer diagnosis is scary and typically never as straightforward as you think it should be. In my case, one dr. told me to get a mastectomy, one advised me to get a lumpectomy and another counseled a bi-lateral mastectomy. Chemo was also considered "optional" and there were different chemo options that I was asked to choose among if I decided to have chemo at all. It was overwhelming. I had no idea how to navigate this and was filled with anxiety. After I completed my treatment 6 years ago, I was determined to try to help women with the knowledge I gained so they wouldn't have to go through the stress I did. I love volunteering at SHARE. The organization helps me to keep growing in my knowledge of the disease and it's wonderful to touch others. SHARE makes a difference one person at a time. It's a fantastic organization.

I was diagnosed in 2001 with Breast Cancer and joined a SHARE support group. Even though I knew, I could always find support here, it wasn't until I became a volunteer that I learne, first-hand how much of an impact SHARE makes on the lives of women who face a diagnosis of breast or ovarian with cancer. I grew to understand the importance of their support system and what they contributed to a women's survivorship in their battle against these diseases. Here at SHARE one can find an oasis away from the stress and turmoil , that living with cancer can bring and find support, be it emotion, informational or avocational support

I was diagnosed 7 years ago and introduced to SHARE by my surgeon and by the American Cancer Society. At SHARE I found tremendous support from the group leaders and other breast cancer survivors. Only they could understand how I felt. SHARE has always there for me and I will always be there for SHARE and all the the women diagnosed with breast cancer./

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.

I learned about SHARE from a friend over 8 years ago when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. After some encouragement and with some skepticism, I joined a SHARE support group. It was a wonderful experience and extremely helpful in dealing with the many issues around my diagnosis and treatment. In addition to being a recipient of services, including educational programs, I have since volunteered at SHARE in several capacities. Volunteering for me is an opportunity to use my breast cancer experience and knowledge to help other individuals and to advocate for improved diagnostic tools, treatments, prevention and a cure for breast cancer. SHARE’s staff is knowledgeable and supportive and, with it’s volunteers, form a community that provides opportunity for connection, support and empowerment. I'm always reminded how lucky I have been to have connected with SHARE. I hope that SHARE will continue to grow to expand its visability and reach, so that more people have similar opportunities.
