Northfield, Ill., Oct. 31, 2023 – Medline today announced SHARE Cancer Support as the recipient of its first-ever Pink Glove Grant. SHARE will receive a $25,000 grant from the Medline Foundation to help fund their program and expand breast cancer awareness within the Hispanic community.

Across the nation, health outcomes disproportionately impact under resourced communities. This year, the Medline Foundation launched the inaugural “Pink Glove Grant,” supported by the proceeds from the sale of Medline’s Pink Sense Nitrile Exam Gloves.

SHARE will use the grant to provide information—in English and Spanish – on free cancer screenings and mammograms, to help improve breast cancer diagnosis.

“It is so wonderful to be recognized by Medline for SHARE’s work in the community. This grant will go directly toward aiding individuals affected by breast cancer through peer support, in-person groups and helplines.  A growing body of research literature establishes a clear link between support and improved psychological and medical outcomes which has always been at the core of SHARE’s mission,” said Carol Evans, CEO and Executive Director, SHARE Cancer Support.

Since 2005, Medline’s breast cancer awareness campaign has been committed to supporting community-centered solutions that provide an immediate impact for addressing health inequalities within breast cancer care. This community collaboration works with experts to provide essential resources, helps re-direct adverse outcomes and improves the well-being of people, families and the community at large.

“We are proud to present the Pink Glove Grant to an organization that demonstrates a strong dedication to aiding communities and individuals affected by breast cancer,” said Karen Frey, senior philanthropy manager, Medline. “SHARE’s values align with the purpose of this grant by directly addressing health inequities by providing free education and resources to those who have boundaries to access.”
