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.

“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

Last year, Maine Cancer Foundation commissioned a first-of-its-kind statewide needs assessment for Maine's cancer communities, including: patients and their caregivers, treatment professionals, ancillary care providers, healthcare administrators,  cancer researchers, and those in the policy/advocacy arena. 

Our objective was to talk to the folks on the front line of the fight against cancer in Maine and build a comprehensive picture of best practices, gaps and opportunities for future improvement.
