Happy 25th Anniversary SHAREing & CAREing!

By Christine Papas

SHAREing & CAREing was founded in 1994 to address the needs of cancer patients and their families in Queens County and throughout New York City. It is the only not-for-profit working with all members of the community—regardless of insurance status—to provide education on prevention and wellness, links to cancer treatment and practical needs, and ongoing counseling support. All of the services are free of charge.

SHAREing & CAREing organized in 7 November its Annual Benefit and Hellenic Daily News was there!

Anna Kril, Founder and President, thanked everyone who supported financially the organization and promised that the funds that were collected will “go a long way to provide one-on-one support for women facing diagnosis and treatment and for our young people at our numerous outreaches each year”. She also congratulated the community hospitals for their support (Mount Sinai Quenns, NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst, NYC Health + Hospitals/Queens).
