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

Rating: 5 stars  

Shortly after I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I began attending support group meetings for young women with breast cancer at SHARE. These meetings and the women I met through them were extraordinarily helpful. They allayed my fears, gave me tips on how to cope, encouraged me, and understood my experiences in a way that others couldn’t. It was so wonderful to sit in a room full of breast cancer warriors; it gave me hope and made me feel less alone.”

A few years later, the Facilitator for SHARE’s Young Women With Breast Cancer Support Group decided to “retire” after eight years of service and I was asked to take her place. I was flattered to be asked and am honored to be able to spend time with these women warriors on a regular basis, and hopefully help them through their breast cancer journey.
