Rochelle Shoretz was first diagnosed with early stage breast cancer at age 28, and then with metastatic breast cancer at age 37.  She is now the founder and executive director of Sharsheret, a national non-profit organization that provides support and resources to young Jewish women and their families facing breast cancer.  Despite the sadness her experience with cancer may have brought her and her loved ones, Shoretz says cancer gave her an opportunity to do what she loves and put her skills to use for an amazing cause.  "When I reflect on my own life, because of what I've done with cancer, I've had it all," she says.  Shoretz believes the impact of the cancer community is great and feels privileged to be part of that voice.
