    Facing
    Breast Cancer
  • Young Jewish women facing breast cancer have unique concerns. Consider Sharsheret your personal gateway to the resources you may need over time.

    Learn how we can help

  • When facing cancer, it makes a world of difference to connect with someone who shares your experience as well as your values and culture.

    Find resources for women at every age

  • You might wonder what comes next for you and your loved one. We can help you navigate your concerns about fertility, intimacy, and facing cancer together.

    Learn how we can help

  • A cancer diagnosis affects the entire family. We offer help for partners, children, parents, and friends.

    Learn how we can help

  • One in 40 Ashkenazi Jews carries a BRCA gene mutation, nearly 10 times the rate of the general population. Working with health care professionals, we help you develop local cancer programs.

    Find resources for you and your patients

  • Breast cancer is not a Jewish woman's issue. It's a Jewish community issue.
