Not sure if a support group is right for you? Each SHARE support group is a low-pressure, empowering opportunity to exchange experiences, information, and care with women who understand what you're going through. Research shows that women with a strong community of support have better health outcomes.

Finding a great doctor and the right treatment is only part of getting through breast cancer-- getting the right support is also critical. That's why SHARE offers a range of support groups for breast cancer, including:

  • online support groups
  • support groups for breast cancer patients
  • survivor support groups
  • breast cancer support groups for husbands and other caregivers

Our local breast cancer support groups and online community touch on a wide variety of experiences and topics, so you can get the right support no matter where you are. We also offer a free breast cancer support hotline at 844-ASK-SHARE, where you can speak with a trained breast cancer survivor who will discuss your treatment options, offer encouragement, or connect you with resources.
