My first contact with SHARE was through their survivor hotline. When I was first diagnosed with breast cancer, I felt so isolated and confused. It was shocking and surreal. Speaking to someone who was a survivor was a blessing. I am so thankful for the voice on the other end of the phone that helped me through this challenging time. She knew what I was going through and became a valuable member of my support network. I also thank my primary care physician, a breast cancer survivor, for recommending that I call SHARE.

I joined SHARE soon after I was operated on for endometrial cancer. It was the link I needed between dealing with the fear and getting my life back. When I joined I believe I was the first hot line volunteer with EC. Helping others for the time I was involved helped me also. Great Great organization!!

a few very important ways. I found helping others was good for me, being with woman who shared my experience was great. Being able to refer frightened women to a place where they can be directed and calmed was a gift for all.

SHARE's services to the Spanish speaking community are unique in many ways. They offer support groups that not only serve the cancer survivors but their friends and family alike. SHARE has develop programs to address the needs of this community like no other organization in NYC has done. SHARE provides education, advocacy and nutrition programs in Spanish, to name a few. The latest idea, a novella to educate young Latinas about breast cancer. The attention to the needs and realities of this particular community is what makes SHARE, and particularly its LatinaSHARE Program such a success.

It has challenged me to get involved in the political aspects of the fight against breast and ovarian cancer. Legislation on health care and research funds are needed to win the war against cancer.

Share helped me enormously as both a patient/client and then as a volunteer. Their counseling services and then their support groups helped me get through a very difficult and potentially life-threatening time in my life. I was so impressed with them that I subsequently became a volunteer and advocate, attending a training weekend in Washington. Thank you for empowering me and keep up the good work!

This organization does amazing things for women (and their family members and others) who are dealing with a cancer diagnosis. I think that my group was the single most supportive and positive experience during the my treatment and recovery and was very helpful in dealing with the every day issues that arise. It deserves all the support it can get.

Share has been an incredible force in my life. The women that I have met there will always be great friends, confidants and sisters in the fight of our lives. We Share with each other and help each other to find information. As a young woman diagnosed with breast cancer, I found it incredibly empowering to meet other women so willing to share their experiences with me in order to make mine easier to deal with. I enjoyed giving back in the same way. And it was therapeutic for me to do that at that time in my life.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The feeling that I can handle it because I know other women who have done so. I am now empowered to make the best of what I have to deal with.

When I was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer more than 18 years ago, I was shocked, emotionally and psychologically broken, wrote a will and thought I was going to die. My partner had a friend who recommended SHARE. When I thought my days were numbered, SHARE became my lifeline, and I met the most caring, knowledgeable, empowering, supportive, loving women I could ever have imagined. I became attended support groups, shared my story which helped to help others advocate for themselves through the labyrinth of hospitals, doctors and insurance. My love of SHARE and what it has accomplished over the years has no boundaries. While I am no longer involved on a weekly basis, SHARE knows that they can count on my support anytime.

When I was first diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer in 1995, SHARE put me in touch with a survivor. At that time, I didn't know that women could survive this deadly disease. She gave me hope and support in those first trying months. Now fifteen years later, I do the same for others who call the Hotline.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1993 and knew absolutely no one with the disease. By attending support groups at SHARE, I found so many women I could really talk to. The sense of community then and now is amazing. The level-headed information presented by speakers, by peer counselors and by patients, has helped all along the way. SHARE makes it possible for people to volunteer using their talents. I love this organization.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I was a member of a support group upon a breast cancer diagnosis. Had the oppty to run a study group for those interested in natural therapies. Was also involved in advocacy.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find more money for them so they could serve ALL women with cancer - not just breast and ovarian.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the genuine caring that takes place there.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

amazingly helpful and very friendly

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand its service to work with all women with all types of cancer.

Ways to make it better...

I didn't have to get breast cancer to be part of this group!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of funds to do more services in the community.

One thing I'd also say is that...

They have the most dedicated volunteers year after year. I was first involved in 1993 and am still involved when I give a talk or attend a meeting (even though I now live in Florida, I still manage to get to some events each year).
