About SHARE – Self-Help For Women With Breast or Ovarian Cancer
The SHARE – Self-Help for Women with Breast or Ovarian Cancer is a non-profit regional organization dedicated to providing women with breast or ovarian cancer, their families, and friends with emotional and social support services free of charge. SHARE was established in 1976 and provides programs and services that have been developed in response to community needs and, in most cases, are administered by cancer survivors. SHARE�s services include a hotline, peer-led support groups, and educational, wellness, and advocacy opportunities. Through these programs, the organization endeavors to enable women to make informed decisions about their treatment and care. SHARE also engages in advocacy efforts on local and national levels to focus attention on breast and ovarian cancer and to obtain funding for ongoing medical research.
