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)

“Giving back is an important part of our culture and builds upon our commitment to making a difference, whether it’s using our skills and experience to match companies and talent, or contributing to non-profit organizations that help others. We are pleased to recognize and support the positive impact that the MBCC makes through this contribution,” said Carll Wilkinson, Managing Partner of Smith & Wilkinson.
