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

Rating: 5 stars  

I learned about SHARE from a friend over 8 years ago when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. After some encouragement and with some skepticism, I joined a SHARE support group. It was a wonderful experience and extremely helpful in dealing with the many issues around my diagnosis and treatment. In addition to being a recipient of services, including educational programs, I have since volunteered at SHARE in several capacities. Volunteering for me is an opportunity to use my breast cancer experience and knowledge to help other individuals and to advocate for improved diagnostic tools, treatments, prevention and a cure for breast cancer. SHARE’s staff is knowledgeable and supportive and, with it’s volunteers, form a community that provides opportunity for connection, support and empowerment. I'm always reminded how lucky I have been to have connected with SHARE. I hope that SHARE will continue to grow to expand its visability and reach, so that more people have similar opportunities.
