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

Rating: 5 stars  

Thank goodness a friend told me about SHARE when I was first diagnosed with breast cancer! I called SHARE's helpline and signed up for a support group for newly diagnosed women like myself who were all in shock and terrified of dying. The group made it possible for me to go through treatment with hope and the knowledge that others who really understood what I was going through were there to give me strength and help me get through this. Since then, I've had the honor to become a member of SHARE's Board of Directors (and Board President for a time), and I've seen first-hand how much good SHARE does with its limited resources. They provide information, support, education, and advocacy for diverse women with breast, ovarian, or metastatic cancer, and their friends, family, and caregivers, all provided by survivor volunteers and a small, incredibly dedicated staff. Every penny in SHARE's budget goes a long way in helping SHARE see to that no one has to face these cancers alone.
