May 8 is World Ovarian Cancer Day!

On May 8, people around the world are gathering to support awareness of ovarian cancer. Join SHARE by following us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, where we’ll be posting about signs, symptoms, and stories you can share with the women in your life.

SHARE’s Annual Volunteer Party

April is National Volunteer Appreciation Month, and SHARE hosted its annual volunteer party to show how much we appreciate the incredible commitment of our volunteers. It was another great gathering with a raffle, food, music, and of course, amazing company.

Announcing SHARE’s National Expansion

New Support Groups Active in Norwalk, CT; Brentwood, NY; and Orlando, FL
After 42 years in New York City, SHARE Cancer Support has announced a national expansion effort. Norwalk, CT; Brentwood, Long Island, NY; and Orlando, FL are the first cities outside New York City to offer SHARE’s in-person services to women with breast or ovarian cancers.

Introducing new program formats!

If you receive our program calendar or email newsletter, you may have noticed some new types of educational programs. In addition to our webinars and in-person programs, we are now offering interactive educational opportunities through other platforms. These new kinds of programs offer the same quality content, and make it easy for you to engage with the presenters.

SHARE Women Featured in Story About BRCA Mutations

Manhattan newspaper Chelsea Now recently ran a story about women who discovered they had a BRCA mutation and how they chose to take preventative action-- or what they decided to do instead. Featured in the story are SHARE's own Breast Cancer Program Director Christine Benjamin, who was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer at age 36 and later found she had an abnormal BRCA1 gene, Ovarian Helpline Coordinator Andrea Herzberg, who had been treated for late stage ovarian cancer before finding she has the BRCA2 mutation, and Deborah Polinsky, a SHARE ovarian cancer support group facilitator and patient advocate living with the BRCA1 mutation.
