SHARE Leaders learn about science and then use their knowledge to advocate for high quality breast cancer research and treatment.
SHARE Leaders are breast cancer survivors who have completed at least one of the National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund's Project LEAD courses and who continue to learn through monthly meetings at SHARE.
The Project LEAD courses are sophisticated yet accessible introductions to basic science and quality care. They last several days and take place in different cities.
Scholarships are often available.
SHARE Leaders continue our peer education at monthly meetings in New York. We bond while learning and learn while bonding.
SHARE Leaders have played pivotal roles in changing the way drugs are approved by government for general use, and in advancing new treatments based on scientific breakthroughs.
