Getting through Chemo

April's Question: 
What are some tips for getting through chemotherapy?

Our blogger Megan Rutherford compiles answers from several SHARE Helpline volunteers, and then offers her own guidance! 
Caregiver Support at SHARE
Did you know SHARE offers a monthly caregiver support group?
David Holmes, who co-facilitates the group, says, "The Caregiver support group offers a forum to openly discuss the challenges of being a caregiver or just listen to others' experiences. One of the group's greatest benefits is the ability to talk with those who have experience giving support and who can empathize with the difficulty of the process."

The next meeting is Tuesday, April 14, at 6:00 PM. Please register by calling 212-382-2111 or get more information.

Minority Health Month
April is National Minority Health Month, a time to raise awareness about health disparities that continue to affect minority populations.

SHARE addresses these concerns year-round through our Ambassador program. This initiative sends breast and ovarian cancer survivors to under-served Latino/Hispanic and African-American communities to raise awareness about these diseases. Find out more here
