Trained helpline volunteers, who are survivors themselves, offer emotional support to women as they go through treatment. Every year, SHARE’s Helplines live coverage provide immediate help to thousands of callers who need to talk to someone who has been there. SHARE offers not only hope and guidance, but also opportunities for women to make connections with others facing similar challenges.
From the SHARE website:
“We help them face their feelings and fears, communicate effectively with their doctors, and make informed decisions about their health, all at no charge. We also offer services to friends, family members, and caregivers who, along with their loved ones, share in the impact that a diagnosis of cancer can make on their lives.”
All services are free of charge. SHARE provides telephone support, support groups, educational programs, and advocacy activities. Call toll-free to talk to someone about breast or ovarian cancer -- in English, Spanish, and 10 other languages.
TOLL-FREE HELPLINE: 844-ASK-SHARE (844-275-7427)

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.
