Sharsheret, Hebrew for “chain”, is a national not-for-profit organization supporting young women and their families, of all Jewish backgrounds, facing breast cancer. Their mission is to offer a community of support to women diagnosed with breast cancer or at increased genetic risk, by fostering culturally-relevant individualized connections with networks of peers, health professionals, and related resources.
In our local community many have been affected by breast cancer and Jewish Family Service is excited to play a vital role in supporting, educating and connecting those interested.
The goal of the Sharsheret Supports program is to successfully combine the local breast cancer resources available to you with Sharsheret’s vast national expertise and culturally-sensitive resource materials. Jewish Family Service is planning to create and enhance culturally-relevant local breast cancer programs, support services, resources, and events.
For an initial event Jewish Family Service has scheduled an open meeting at which we are going to view a national webinar: Clinical Trials: What You Need to Know. The History, Myths, and Truths about Clinical Trials.
This program will take place on December 10th, 2014 at 7:30 till 9:30 PM at Jewish Family Service of Northeastern Pennsylvania, 615 Jefferson Avenue, Scranton, PA.
The first part of the meeting will be an introduction with light refreshments, which will be followed by viewing the Webinar after which’s conclusion there will be a discussion.
