Anna Kril, Founder

Anna Kril is one of the founders of SHAREing and CAREing, an organization started by a group of survivors who wanted to help those who suffer with this disease and instill in them the belief that one can never lose hope. Diagnosed with breast cancer in 1993, she made a promise to herself that she would turn this diagnosis into something positive. Anna saw how fortunate she was to have a support network of friends, family and physicians to help her overcome the challenge but she realized that many others were not as fortunate. New York City, specifically Queens, did not offer services for those affected by breast cancer beyond the clinical setting. While her accomplishments and accolades are vast, Anna continually strives to advocate for those who need it most. In the coming years she wants the ability to share with and assist more individuals in their struggles and would like to reach out to the younger generations so that they are better informed. “No one should suffer alone. Practical needs must be met with the individual and family receiving support during treatment and while in remission.”
