Our Peer Support Network connects women newly diagnosed or at high risk of developing breast cancer or ovarian cancer one-on-one with others who share similar diagnoses and experiences.

Whether you are at risk for breast cancer or ovarian cancer, are newly diagnosed, or are a cancer survivor you can speak with other women who share your experience in our national Peer Support Network. You can also share your own experience by becoming a Sharsheret “Link,” a peer supporter, and enjoy the rewarding experience of supporting other women across the country. Our confidential “Links” connect over the phone and through email, and offer invaluable friendship and support.

The Peer Support Network is made possible with support from:

Genentech is a leading biotechnology company that discovers, develops, manufactures and commercializes medicines to treat patients with serious or life-threatening medical conditions.


YAD: The Young ADult Caring Corner at Sharsheret is here to support you as you support your loved one. You are not alone.

It’s scary when someone you love is diagnosed with cancer. You might wonder how you can support them, and you might feel selfish for wanting to also take care of yourself; for wanting to continue to do the things you like to do: seeing your friends, doing your hobbies, going to school and work.

We’re here to help you understand your loved one’s diagnosis, how you can help (even from afar), and how you can take care of yourself while still caring for them.

This program has been dedicated by Joy and Michael Goldsmith
