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

Rating: 5 stars  

When I was first diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer I was stunned, deeply depressed and in a total panic. I felt my life was over. At my lowest point, I reached out to SHARE several times, and each time the wonderful volunteers listened and help keep me from spinning out of control. SHARE found a peer with a similar clinical profile who was living a full, productive life many years into the disease. It gave me hope. One of the volunteers even followed up on my latest test results by emailing me. They make a personal connection that was a lifeline to me. I am sure I will call again. I do not live close enough to attend group sessions, but am looking forward to joining the telephone support groups.
