SHARE on the Frontlines: Meet Lucero and Her Work with LatinaSHARE

SHARE’s LatinaSHARE Outreach Ambassadors reach 30,000 people each year in their own communities with life-saving information in Spanish about signs, symptoms, risk factors, screening and treatment options. In neighborhoods throughout New York City, women and families are able to learn about breast, metastatic breast, ovarian, uterine and cervical cancer - at health fairs, churches, food pantries, senior centers, consulates, and schools.

Spotlight On: SHARE’s Support Groups

We interviewed three of SHARE's support group participants to share their stories and spread awareness of our free resources, which are open to anyone and everyone affected by a cancer diagnosis.

Celebrating International Women’s Month at SHARE

"I've worked for women's cancer nonprofits for over 25 years and through my position as director of SHARE's uterine/endometrial cancer program, I've been so grateful to continue my work in this area. We started the SHARE uterine program two years ago and it's been very gratifying to provide much-needed support and information to women affected by uterine cancer who didn't have many resources in the past.

Tell us about your cancer experience 

I was first diagnosed with cancer when I was 44 years old. I was a single mother of 2 boys, 14 and 18. At that time all I knew about cancer was that people died from this disease. I really did not know my family history with cancer, because we never ever talked about family illnesses or who died from what.

Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month
