SHARE offers two programs that give volunteers an opportunity to educate themselves about breast and ovarian cancer so that they can advocate for research funds, legislation, and quality care.
SHARE Advocates speak out and raise awareness about breast and ovarian cancer among legislators, government agencies, drug companies, and medical practitioners. They attend advocacy conferences held around the country and collaborate with other advocates. They also blog periodically about various issues. Check out our blog here.
SHARE Leaders are graduates of NBCCF's Project LEAD program, an intensive basic science course on breast cancer. SHARE Leaders gather monthly to keep up to date on scientific issues, such as new drugs or controversial treatment regimens. They use their knowledge to serve on FDA committees, research panels, and other vehicles.
