Support Groups

Support-Groups_01

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-- to hear and be heard. Research shows that women with a strong community of support have better health outcomes. Our cancer support groups are led by trained peers who have been where you've been, and they cover a variety of different experiences and themes, so you can get the help that's right for you.
