Review for Share Self-Help for Women with Breast or Ovarian Cancer, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  


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.
