After a year or so of receiving their help, I became involved with SHARE's lobby program up in Albany, NY and in Washington DC. It was not just rewarding, but empowering to belong to SHARE! I was very happy to be able to give back for the sake of any who follow because I'd been helped. I don't currently volunteer, but it's an organization, a group of people I keep very close to my heart.

The Great!

SHARE is a critical, invaluable resource for women who have been diagnosed with breast and ovarian cancer. The hotline allows you to call and be matched with someone who can help you through a scary, confusing time. The support groups are well-facilitated. The advice is current and thoughtful, and the information is reliable. Additionally, SHARE runs and connects you to programs and seminars discussing the latest research and findings. I recommend SHARE to anyone dealing with Breast or Ovarian Cancer, whether for themselves or ones they care about.

I found Share Self-help to be a gusher (as opposed to fountain) of compassionate caring and crucial support during our time of need. We went to a variety of fascinating didactic educational programs; and one we found a speaker who we would eventually reach out to from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center who would eventually be her attending physician. We also had a chance to interact and benefit from their extraordinary executive director on various occasions. I unequivocally recommend this wonderful support organization to breast and ovarian cancer fighters and their caregivers and support system.

During the lengthy time that my best friend was well enough to actively participate; and I went to various public lectures after she passed away. Please see my above comments.

I was diagnosed at age 42 with breast cancer in 2001. I didn't know who to turn to to get support or information until a friend told me about SHARE. Through their support group meetings and informational meetings about a variety of subjects, I got through the breast cancer treatment, a reaction to the post treatment medications and then a double prophetic mastectomy and the decision as to which type of reconstruction I should get. There was one informational meeting that I think saved my life: lymphedema. I was taught at that meeting that if I get a fever and redness in my affected arm, to go to the ER right away because it could be cellulites. Turns out, that's exactly what happened and if I had not known how serious it was, I would not have gone to the ER. I was told at the ER that I could have died from that infection (which turned out to be from a simple mosquito bite on my affected arm). None of my doctors told me about the dangers of lymphedema, but Share did. So I want to give a big THANK YOU to Share. Sincerely, Jen Serpenti

Share is a wonderful grass-roots organization that keeps evolving to address the needs of women with breast and ovarian cancer. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to make a decision about my treatment, I called the hot line and talked to someone who helped me brainstorm. Later, when I was considering whether to have reconstruction after a bilateral mastectomy, I called the hot line and was paired with a peer match: a woman who had had a mastectomy without reconstruction who talked to me frankly about what it felt like, how she dressed, whether she had regrets. I was so moved by the help I got from Share that I now volunteer on the hot line myself!
