Shortly after I was diagnosed with stage one invasive breast cancer at age 34, I began attending support group meetings for young women with breast cancer at SHARE. The women I met allayed my fears, gave me tips on how to cope, encouraged me, and understood my experiences in a way that others couldn’t. It was so wonderful to sit in a room full of breast cancer warriors; it gave me hope and made me feel less alone.
