Breast Cancer Helpline Manager
"After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, I began attending SHARE’s support group meetings. These meetings and the women I met through them were extraordinarily helpful. They eased my fears, gave me tips on how to cope, encouraged me, and understood my experiences in a way that others couldn’t. My friends and family were amazing, but it was so wonderful to sit in a room full of breast cancer warriors; it gave me hope and made me feel less alone. A few years later, one of the facilitators at SHARE decided to “retire” after eight years of service and I was asked to take her place. I was flattered, and am honored to be able to spend time with these women warriors on a regular basis, and hopefully help them through their breast cancer journeys. I have also become a peer counselor, a helpline volunteer, a facilitator of the Coping with Aromatase Inhibitors support group, and now I am thrilled to have joined the staff of SHARE as the Breast Cancer Helpline Manager.
