BENEFITING: SOUTHERN MAINE HEALTH CARE
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Many of us know at least one woman, probably many, who have been touched or even devastated by this frightening disease. SMHC’s Center for Breast Care enables our friends and neighbors to get their breast cancer care right here, close to their homes, families and friends. Sponsorships, donations and pledges raised through the Maine Coast Half Marathon, Bosom Buddy Relay and Marathon will help provide extra programs and services including a specially trained nurse “navigator” who supports cancer patients and their families at every step of their journey as they make critical care decisions.
“Being able to receive my cancer care close to home was so important,” stated breast cancer survivor LouAnn Tovey. “By pledging a runner or making a donation to support the Center for Breast Care, your contribution will benefit others coping with breast cancer.”
We would like to invite you to join LouAnn and other breast cancer survivors in our community in fighting against this disease. SMHC’s Center for Breast Care has been designated as a breast imaging center of excellence by the American College of Radiology. On behalf of our breast cancer patients, thank you for your support and encouraging your family and friends to pledge your efforts!
