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

Rating: 5 stars  

SHARE became a part of my life when my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1993. My mother needed to connect with women that understood what she was going through. My mom joined a group in Harlem. SHARE helped my mother understand cancer. My mother in turn helped her children understand cancer. SHARE members helped my mom and her children to not be afraid. My mom passed in 1997. In 1998, several members of my family proudly participated in our first SHARE walk-a-thon, in honor of our mother, Elaine M. Johnson. After that first walk-a-thon experience, I began recruiting friends and family to walk with me. Words can express the joy I felt walking every year. SHARE is a wonderful organization that not only helps women with breast and ovarian cancer, they also support family and friends of women with breast and ovarian cancer. My family wouldn't have adjusted as well without SHARE. Thank you SHARE.
