BENEFITING: SOUTHERN MAINE HEALTH CARE
ORGANIZER: SOUTHERN MAINE HEALTH CARE
EVENT DATE: May 13, 2017
Please support my fundraising efforts for the Center for Breast Care on Team SMHC!
I am a breast surgeon as well as a general surgeon in SMHC's Center for Breast Care. What I really love about SMHC Breast Center is the sense of family that we strive to achieve. Many breast cancer survivors will tell you they couldn’t have done it without the support of their family and friends. At SMHC, we are there to support people like they are family. We support family members too, and if someone has no family to help them, we ARE their family, calling to check on them, helping them get rides, calling to provide support. Since we are a smaller hospital, we can truly make a difference and treat people very personally.
To do this, we use the finances from fundraisers like this to provide taxi vouchers, provide lymphedema sleeves when insurance companies won’t cover, and to provide professional counseling services, among other services. These are critical services that really make a difference for breast cancer patients and their families.
Please donate today to help this wonderful cause!
