The Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center's mission is to offer hope, knowledge, and support to cancer patients, their families, caregivers, and friends by providing a source of information, social services, and compassion through all stages of the cancer journey. We have been offering programs and services since September of 2004.
To assist people affected by cancer, the Center has grown beyond the Ellsworth hub to offer outreach programs in many locations and plans to continue to improve service to the Down East in particular. All programs are offered to participants at no charge. In addition, we assist people with transportation to treatment (gas cards, rides when possible), reduced overnight accomodation costs, and household emergencies. We continue to explore ways to expand our services.
Our mission is important as Hancock and Washington Counties have a significantly higher rate than the rest of Maine for "all cancers", and Maine's rate is significantly higher than the rest of of the US for "all cancers".
Thank you for your support!
