Review for Share Self-Help for Women with Breast or Ovarian Cancers, Inc., New York, NY, USA
My work in advocacy was as unexpected as my breast cancer diagnosis. It was the women of SHARE who helped me in this journey. When I first walked through SHARE's door twenty years ago with a diagnosis that might have defeated me, I immediately felt a sense of empowerment. SHARE was and is a community where empathy, support and intelligent information overflow. My first support group there helped me adjust to my "new normal" and I later used that strength to facilitate many groups myself. The training I received was remarkable. With SHARE's guidance, I became politically active, lobbying in Washington DC and connecting to other advocates nationally, even inaugurating a breast cancer patient advocacy program in a New York hospital.
