Details About Association

Founded in 2001, Sharsheret (Hebrew word for “chain”), is a national non-profit organization, focused on improving 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. We offer tailored resources, information, and support to caregivers, family members, and friends of women facing breast and ovarian cancer to guide them through their cancer journey. All services are free and can be easily accessed online and by phone, email, text, and livechat. All services are individualized and provided one-on-one by our nine skilled social workers and genetic counselor.
