Share Self-Help for Women with Breast or Ovarian Cancer, Inc.
June 16, 2010

I am a two-time survivor of breast cancer. The first was in 1997 when I was diagnosed with invasive, aggressive DCIS. My surgeon is on the Board of SHARE, and I picked up a leaflet in her office. I had important decisions to make, and was completely overwhelmed. The hot line volunteers were wonderful support, and referred me to resources. Also the educational seminars helped keep me informed about the disease and the treatment options. At the time SHARE also had many wellness programs like yoga, meditation, reiki, support groups,etc. All of their services are free, and available in outer boroughs as well. Most of the staff consists of dedicated volunteers, almost all of whom are breast or ovarian cancer survivors. They have to be commended for the excellent service they provide with very limited resources.
