Dear SHARE Family,

What does Breast Cancer Awareness Month mean to you? 

At SHARE, it’s a time to reach out – with information about screenings and symptoms. It’s a time to provide support and give assistance to women facing the many challenges that come with breast cancer.

Help SHARE now with a generous contribution to support our breast cancer programs.
Nina called the Helpline when she was first diagnosed. She called because she was scared and confused by her diagnosis, and did not have a place to stay in New York City near the hospital where she was being treated. She didn’t know whether to trust her doctors’ guidance on having a lumpectomy and her husband, a veteran with PTSD, was not coming to terms with her diagnosis. SHARE helped Nina through ongoing calls with our knowledgeable team – more than 15 over 6 months – that gave her guidance on where to go for housing assistance, how to make decisions with her doctor, and how to cope with anxiety and depression. Nina needed a hand with a whole range of issues that come with a diagnosis, from how to fill out online forms, to how to cope with side effects. SHARE has been there for her, and will continue to be there for as long as she needs our support.

Help women like Nina who have nowhere else to turn for
compassionate, knowledgeable support!
Your contribution makes a real difference in October, and throughout the year as SHARE helps women across the country face the problems, large and small, that go with a cancer diagnosis. Our volunteers speak 28 languages and reflect a rich diversity of ages, backgrounds, and experiences – and we are here for anyone facing a breast cancer diagnosis. 

Many thanks for your generosity, and for joining us as we continue to empower the women we serve!
