I was honored to be invited o be a member of the Latina Share Advisory Board. In the time that I have known the program I have seen how the volunteers and staff extend a helping hand to women in need of advise and support. They often go above the call of duty staying on the phone into the night with women in crisis or visiting them at hospital bedsides. SHARE has created a community of women helping women to survive, learn from each other, and be comforted by. The LatinaShare program especially provides much needed support services to an underserved community that has few options to turn to. From Latina Share Spanish speaking women diagnosed with breast cancer can also benefit from SHARE’s programming. They get information and support that is presented to them not only in Spanish but in a culturally relevant manner. This work takes a lot of energy and dedication and I am proud to be a part of this organization. Now, whenever I encounter someone who could benefit from SHARES services either because they or a family have been diagnosed with breast cancer without hesitation I recommend that they call SHARE.
