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

Rating: 5 stars  

I am still associated with SHARE twenty-five years after calling its Hotline upon a breast cancer diagnosis and have had the opportunity to watch the organization grow with the changing landscapes of breast and ovarian cancer. During this time I was a 'client', a volunteer in many capacities, including running support groups and training other organizations to use the peer support model , a Hotline staff person, and for quite a number of years now am part of the Board of Directors. I never 'left' as I have great respect for the work that SHARE is doing and enjoy being part of the challenge that the organization has faced as it continues to expand its services to more people and in more meaningful forms.
I have worked with other non profits and find that SHARE is unique in the way it reaches out to people and continues to accommodate the needs of its participants and the communities it serves. And with awe, have watched how it has been instrumental in empowering people who deal with these cancers.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

I found SHARE when I called their Hotline, the day I was told that I had a tumor, twenty years ago. Since then I have used their services and volunteered in almost every capacity. Althugh SHARE has expanded in all its services it has maintained its ability to help individuals one by one. I am still in awe of the work of this organization.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

dealing with my own breast cancer, discovering that information and support are powerful tools for gaining control in a situation that seems 'out of control'.
