(Selections will be announced on Feb 2, 2015)

We can't all be a doctor or a healthcare professional, or a research scientist working to find a cure for cancer. But we can choose to support them. Your tax-deductible gift will be put work funding cancer research, education and patient support programs here in Maine.  Maine Cancer Foundation is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization.

Cancer is the #1 killer of Mainers. Every year more than 9,000 Maine residents are diagnosed with cancer, and about 3,000 of them die.  Chances are that you know some of the victims.

We need better ways to diagnose, treat and cure cancer – and eventually to prevent it.  A new Center for Biometric Analysis would give scientists important new tools for understanding human disease. The new facility would combine technicians, technology and operational capacity in a way that has not previously been possible in Maine.

“WITCHES WEAR PINK” is a growing group of dedicated women who have joined hands to strengthen the fight against breast cancer. The American Cancer Society estimates that 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer during her life time. About 232,670 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women and nearly 40,000 lives will be lost. Our goal is to help lower these statistics by raising money for breast cancer research, preventative care medicine and the women’s cancer fund. All fundraising for our 2014 event will benefit the Maine Cancer Foundation.

When: Saturday, October 18th, Witching Hours 6 - 10pm

Where: The Woodlands Country Club, 39 Woods Road, Falmouth, ME
