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

Rating: 5 stars  

My work in advocacy was as unexpected as my breast cancer diagnosis. It was the women of SHARE who helped me in this journey. When I first walked through SHARE's door twenty years ago with a diagnosis that might have defeated me, I immediately felt a sense of empowerment. SHARE was and is a community where empathy, support and intelligent information overflow. My first support group there helped me adjust to my "new normal" and I later used that strength to facilitate many groups myself. The training I received was remarkable. With SHARE's guidance, I became politically active, lobbying in Washington DC and connecting to other advocates nationally, even inaugurating a breast cancer patient advocacy program in a New York hospital.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

First, I experienced the value of one-to-one support at SHARE. Eventually, I saw that I wanted to do more. SHARE was instrumental in providing opportunities for me to learn and share intelligent, useful information. I wanted to fight for our lives.
