I called SHARE when I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. My mother had had cancer, and now it was my turn. I used the Hotline, then joined a support group. I went to a meditation group. They held my hand and got me through. I then became a volunteer, ran support groups, and finally joined the Board. I have nothing but good things to say. SHARE is there for people.

It doesn't matter your educational level or how in control you think you are, when you hear the doctor say "cancer" your world seems to stop. The isolation and fear can be overwhelming for the patient as well as the family. What could be more comforting than to have someone say "I understand, I've been through it"---that is what SHARE is all about. There are many organization that focus on research and finding a cure but for the people going through it right now there is SHARE.

The Great!

The support is amazing; the generosity of these women to help others is a blessing.

I was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1988, before people spoke about it. I wanted to make sure that no one else faced it panic-stricken and alone so I talked about breast cancer all the time. When friends were diagnosed, I was usually one of the early calls. I knew SHARE was exceptionally effective when the go-it-alone professional women with whom I worked stayed in the support groups that they had agreed to attend only once. One friend's group continued to meet independently for many years after they had completed the program at SHARE. Now I speak in SHARE's new corporate seminar program on breast and ovarian cancer. You can see that the survivors are reaching participants with our stories and that they are thinking about the reality of these diseases differently, I hope in a way that will change how they manage the health of their whole family. The program is frequently invited to return, which shows that the companies also consider the initiative effective. With a corps of dedicated staff and volunteers, SHARE has an amazing impact for a relatively small organization.

The Great!

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

using the hotline during my second breast cancer, having my independent friends continue with support groups despite their initial resistance, and seeing the impact of the corporate outreach effort on employees of all ages

Ways to make it better...

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

increase the budget!

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

the sense that SHARE is making a difference in the life of frightened women and their families.

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

a really diverse group, whose common feature is an impressive dedication to SHARE's mission.

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

reach even more women by staffing up and publicizing the broad range of free services available.

Ways to make it better...

I can see that some things could be done quicker, more thoroughly or at all if the organization had more staff.

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

the infinite amount of work that the staff and volunteers could attack.
