Breast cancer patients need support as they navigate the steps of survivorship.
If you have walked the journey as a breast cancer survivor, let your voice be heard
at a forum to help envision, create, and move ahead a new breast cancer survivorship
EMMC Cancer Care would like to know what survivorship topics are important to you. From diet and exercise to mental, emotional, and sexual health. What are you looking for in education, support groups, and community programs?
Please share your thoughts at EMMC Cancer Care’s free community discussion with A. Merrill Garrett, MD, oncologist, EMMC Cancer Care, and the team of doctors, nurse practitioners, and nurses caring for breast cancer survivors.
Light refreshments will be served. Event is 6:00-7:30 pm. Doors open at 5:30 pm. Registration is required by filling out the form here or by calling 973-7483.
During this past October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Maine Staffing Group invited their flaggers in Maine and New Hampshire to participate in a Pink Hard Hat fundraising campaign. All proceeds from the campaign were matched by Project Flagging and were donated to the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition in Sharon’s name. All flaggers received a pink hard hat to wear for the month of October to show their support.
Maine Breast Cancer Coalition is grateful for the generosity of Maine Staffing Group and all of the flaggers who took part in the Project Flagging Pink Hard Hat campaign. Our hearts go out to Sharon Burns’s family and friends. We are honored to accept the $5,000 donation to our Support Service Fund in Sharon's name.
