My first contact with SHARE was through their survivor hotline. When I was first diagnosed with breast cancer, I felt so isolated and confused. It was shocking and surreal. Speaking to someone who was a survivor was a blessing. I am so thankful for the voice on the other end of the phone that helped me through this challenging time. She knew what I was going through and became a valuable member of my support network. I also thank my primary care physician, a breast cancer survivor, for recommending that I call SHARE.
