THE STORY:

Hello! Thank you for visiting our fundraising page! 

Last year, Ben and I ran the Bosom Buddy Relay together and split the 13.1 miles between the two of us. This year Ben is running the full half marathon solo, while I cheer on the sidelines! I am so proud of his commitment to a cause that means so much to us both. We have both witnessed loved ones go through diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer over recent years, and we would love to support the breast cancer survivors in our community. 

You can read more below about how the donation money will be used. Any donation is greatly appreciated! Thank you!! :)

Thank you for visiting the fundraising page of Southern Maine Health Care’s (SMHC) Center for Breast Care. The SMHC Center for Breast Care is privileged to be the official charitable partner of the Maine Coast Marathon and Maine Coast Half Marathon. 100% of funds raised by runners support the Center.

No one ever wants to hear the words, “You have cancer.”

For the women faced with a breast cancer diagnosis, Southern Maine Health Care (SMHC) is here to care for them every step of the way. At the Center for Breast Care, the staff has designed an experience from the input of many patients and survivors to make for a compassionate and caring environment, offering the highest level of care throughout a patient’s journey, and care that is close to home. As one patient shared, “They treated me as if I were a sister.”

As a runner and fundraiser with the Maine Coast Half Marathon or Maine Coast Marathon on May 13th and 14th, you are helping to support our multi-disciplinary treatment approach and resources, all of which make up the special care that we provide to patients in the Center. This includes resources to support individual social worker visits with patients; expenses of educational materials that focus on different aspects of treatment, from new patients to survivors; and speaking programs and support groups to empower, engage, and encourage patients undergoing treatment.

Running a marathon is a lot like battling cancer,” stated breast cancer survivor, Stacey Ivancic. “It’s a journey both ways – you just have to get through it and you’ll be better at the end.”

We invite you to unite with Stacey and other breast cancer survivors in our community to empower one another, fight this disease, and share a message of hope. On behalf of our breast cancer patients, thank you for your support, and we hope you will encourage your family and friends to join us!
