Review for Share Self-Help for Women with Breast or Ovarian Cancers, Inc., New York, NY, USA
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1993. I first heard about SHARE from the wife of one of my authors (I was an editor in scholarly publishing), herself a breast cancer survivor. Like many other women I'd been dealing with the disease as best I could, but I had no connection with other survivors. I first came to SHARE to attend support groups, then for many years I participated in wellness programs, especially yoga. In more recent years I've continued my connection with SHARE as a volunteer, mainly in the office during the day, but also at special events such as the Share-a-Walk (in former days) and the chefs event, A Second Helping of Life. At the present I come in to the office to proofread the Calendar of Events. I can't speak warmly enough about what SHARE has meant in my life! It's been a source of support, enlightenment, good cheer, fellowship, and not least of inspiration. I've met any number of remarkable women (and men) at SHARE. I've now been associated with SHARE longer than with any other organization in New York City.
