Share Self-Help for Women with Breast or Ovarian Cancer, Inc.
May 18, 2010
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!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
both client and volunteer capacity.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
its ability to provide individualized help through peer matches with cancer survivors who had similar issues
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
unfailingly kind, knowledgeable and frank
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
expand! buy new computers! offer more programming!
