The Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation launched the opening survey for the Metastatic Breast Cancer Collateral Damage Project. If you have metastatic breast cancer, you can play a role in improving quality of life for people with this disease by taking 15 minutes to complete a five-question survey.
The survey is a critical first step in documenting the full extent of collateral
damage caused by the disease or its treatment. The long-term goal is to develop a
set of recommendations that will improve the quality of life for people living with
metastatic breast cancer.
TAKE THE SURVEY

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.
