Sharsheret is a national not-for-profit organization supporting young Jewish women and their families facing breast cancer. Our mission is to offer a community of support to women, of all Jewish backgrounds, diagnosed with breast cancer or at increased genetic risk, by fostering culturally-relevant individualized connections with networks of peers, health professionals, and related resources.
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.
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.
