Share Self-Help for Women with Breast or Ovarian Cancer, Inc.
November 11, 2012

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.
