It is with a personal sense of loss we share the following message from Sharsheret:
We are deeply saddened to share that Sharsheret’s Founder and Executive Director, Rochelle Shoretz (A”H), passed away today of complications from breast cancer, a disease for which she created a community of support for thousands. We at Sharsheret have lost our Founder, our leader, our mentor. The Jewish world and the cancer world have lost a true champion of women and their families. Rochelle’s legacy is her children and an incredible organization that only she could have built. Her passion and drive will forever remain the foundation of Sharsheret. Our condolences go out to Rochelle’s family and to all who were touched by this extraordinary woman.
May her memory be a blessing.
