After I ran the NYC Marathon in 2014, I heard about Team Sharsheret, and I asked "How (quickly) can I sign up?"
I've had too many friends and family diagnosed with Breast and Ovarian Cancer, family members tested positive for BRCA- I've seen the impact of Sharsheret, its support and education in our local community.
As life throws us twists and turns I am even more aware of the power of this incredible organization. Please support their work, and support me, by contributing today.
What is Sharsheret...?
Sharsheret supports young women and families facing cancer at every stage—before, during, and after diagnosis. We help women and families connect to our community in the way that feels most comfortable, taking into consideration their stage of life, diagnosis, or treatment. We also provide educational resources, offer specialized support to those facing high risk of developing cancer, and create programs for women and families to improve their quality of life. We understand that young Jewish women have unique concerns when it comes to breast and ovarian cancer, and we are the only organization that specializes in serving them.
