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

Rating: 5 stars  

SHARE was the first phone call I made to any cancer support place after I got diagnosed. A friend told me about it, said I could speak with someone my age who has had a similar cancer as me, so I have it a try. I was feeling so lonely and scared, I needed to speak to someone who had been through this! I got this wonderful woman on the phone, Marjorie, who was so caring and understanding and very, very knowledgeable!! She asked if I wanted a call back in a few days, and I said yes. She offered me her email address and said I could email her whenever I wanted. I hear from her and I emailed her, she was such a great sounding board! She led the Tuesday night cancer support group, so I took the bus from NJ into the city to meet her personally and attend her support group. Months later, I am still making the trip into the city to her group, and we had an ongoing Wednesday phone session, as well as frequent emails. I've met some wonderful meetings in the SHARE support group, and it's been helpful for me during the time of treatment and surgery. I'm truly grateful for this organization!
