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

Rating: 5 stars  

SHARE is an amazing support group for those of us dealing with breast and/or ovarian cancer. When I had a bilateral mastectomy in 2011 I attended a group that was inbelievably supportive and helpful. I learned more from the women in this group than I did from any of my doctors ( a sad but true fact) which helped me enormously. Five years later I have become a breast "helpline" volunteer so that I can give back some of which was given to me. I speak with women around the country, many of whom have no where to turn to, who are ever so grateful to have a group like SHARE. And, as a volunteer, I never cease to be amazed at how much information on so many varied aspects of cancer support SHARE has gathered and continues to update, from moral support to financial aid assistance to seminars and webinars on a variety of subjects that impact women with cancer. At every turn SHARE seems to be expanding its outreach to be able to help more and more women. Kudos to SHARE!
