Just being able to share the very personal effects of cancer and treatment helped relieve my stress about the unkown. Sharing information was the main reason I joined SHARE but the very personal way that members reached out to me, helping me cope with the uncertainty of remission is what I treasure most. A friend of mine who was also ill said she would not join a group because it is so depressing when a member dies from the condition that she is trying to beat. Knowing that an individual you got to know at meetings had a relapse or did not make it even after remission is depressing, but hearing from other members, alive, and living well with this disease lifted my spirits and gave me hope.
