JFCS Greater Mercer County partners with Sharsheret as part of the Sharsheret Supports Program.

Sharsheret, a national not-for-profit organization supporting young women and their families, of all Jewish backgrounds, facing breast cancer and ovarian cancer, is proud to announce Jewish Family & Children Service of Greater Mercer County of Princeton, NJ as a new Sharsheret Supports Partner.

The Sharsheret Supports program assists communities in developing and maintaining local, free breast and ovarian cancer programs and support groups. Sharsheret Supports combines local cancer resources with Sharsheret’s vast national expertise, and culturally-sensitive resource materials to enhance the support available to women and families facing cancer.

Through the Sharsheret Supports program, we will work with JFCS of Greater Mercer County to develop education and support programs tailored to the needs of the Princeton community and connect JFCS of Greater Mercer County with dozens of other Sharsheret Supports partners across the country.

“Since the launch of Sharsheret Supports in 2007, we have partnered with more than 60 Jewish organizations and cancer organizations across the country to develop and maintain local, culturally- relevant breast and ovarian cancer support and education,” said Director of National Outreach Melissa K. Rosen, “We are excited to add JFCS of Greater Mercer County to this list, and work closely with them to increase breast and ovarian cancer awareness within the greater Princeton area.” Together we will improve the quality of life for all Jewish women and families facing breast cancer and ovarian cancer.
