SHARE is a nationwide nonprofit that improves the lives of women affected by breast and ovarian cancers through experienced peer support, accessible education, and innovative outreach, always for free. It meets women wherever they are, especially in medically underserved communities, with the insight of women who have been there too, creating a nationwide network where women are empowered and feel less alone. Its free services include support groups, educational tools, expert-led webinars and presentations, a national helpline, online communities, and survivor-patient navigation, which touch lives more than 150,000 times each year.
Making targeted efforts to reach all women affected by breast or ovarian cancer, SHARE places a special emphasis on programming for women from medically underserved communities. Both LatinaSHARE and SHARE’s Ambassador Program expressly serve women of color, with a focus on low-income women in all five boroughs of New York City.
