New Guest Blog from …SHARE CANCER SUPPORT. SHARE Cancer Support offers support to women who are survivors or victims of breast cancer or ovarian cancer. SHARE’s mission is similar to LIVEURBESTLIFE in that we strive to offer support to those undergoing cancer treatment or cancer survivors, as well as advocating for good, healthy habits in general. Below you will find information regarding Breast Cancer Organizations, Helplines, Hotlines and Support.
Thank you SHARE Cancer Support for participating in this collaborative effort to better help facilitate support for those in need.
Breast Cancer Organizations, Helplines, Hotlines and Support
If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer, you may need someone to talk to. Although you may have the support of family and friends who can help you face this condition, sometimes it’s nice to speak to someone completely different – including those who have been through what you are currently experiencing. There are a number of breast cancer organizations and charities that can provide you with the assistance you need, and can book you a place on a support group, where you will be able to meet other people who are being treated for breast cancer, along with those who are survivors.
Getting Involved with Breast Cancer Support
The National Breast Cancer Foundation is an organization that specializes in assistance for those who have been diagnosed with this condition. The charity was set up in 1991 by a breast cancer survivor, and today provides a number of resources about the disease, as well as information about fund-raising opportunities. The Breast Cancer Fund specializes in prevention, as well as exposing the risks associated with breast cancer. The website features online seminars, image galleries, resources about the condition, as well as information on how to donate.
SHARE also provides information and support. With SHARE you can learn to become an advocate, volunteering your time, passion and support to those who need you. Learn about special events, volunteering, donating and more with SHARE.
Breast Cancer Helplines
The American Cancer Society also provides a number of resources on their website, as well as a cancer hotline that is open 24 hours a day. You will be able to speak to a company representative if you need some more information about coping with cancer, different treatments that might be available to you, screening information, the importance of prevention, pain control and side effects. SHARE, a cancer charity that provides support for women suffering from ovarian or breast cancer, operates cancer helplines specific to breast cancer and ovarian cancer staffed by survivors of these diseases. SHARE is on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Pinterest as well, where there is always a group of friends available to get support from and get involved with.
A support group like SHARE for people who have been diagnosed with breast cancer can be a great way to meet new people and make some new friends as you learn to cope. You will be able to find out more information about the conditions, and meet those who have faced breast cancer and ovarian cancer in the past. You’ll depend on the support of those women who are currently experiencing the same things you are, and they will depend on you too!
