Mission Statement

Mission Statement

Sharsheret, a national non-profit organization, improves the lives of Jewish women and families living with or at increased genetic risk for breast or ovarian cancer through personalized support and saves lives through educational outreach.

While our expertise is in young women and Jewish families as related to breast cancer and ovarian cancer, Sharsheret programs serve all women and men.

Inclusion Statement

Sharsheret recognizes and embraces the full spectrum of diversity within our communities. Sharsheret’s leadership, staff and volunteers invite all voices to be heard, and treat respectfully all who reach out to Sharsheret regardless of economic or social status and do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, ethnic origin, national origin, creed, religion, political belief, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, or age.

 

 Please note, the correct spelling of our name is Sharsheret, not Sharsharet.
