NOTHING stops Sharsheret Executive Director Rochelle Shoretz — not exhaustion after speaking to 1,000 women at Choices or a touch of laryngitis or Stage 4 metastatic cancer.
Sitting in a restaurant in Cherry Creek, the founder of the largest network of supportive services for Jewish women dealing with breast cancer looks up from her booth.
“Hi, I’m Rochelle,” she introduces herself to the Intermountain Jewish News. “I thought it was you. I had a feeling.” Her voice may be compromised but her dedication to Sharsheret (“chain” in Hebrew) is perfectly audible.
At the Choices event, Shoretz discussed the formation of a Sharsheret support partnership with JEWISHcolorado.
