Support Grant

 

The Cancer Community Center provides a wide array of programs and classes at no charge to patients, their family and friends.

This grant will help sustain the Maine Buddy program, a foundational pillar of support for people facing their own or a loved ones cancer diagnosis and treatment, or for those grieving a loss to cancer.

The Maine Buddy program matches those dealing with cancers’ effects with trained volunteers who have been in similar cancer situations. Because many individuals are not comfortable in group settings, are physically unable to come to the Center or are geographically distant, the Maine Buddy Program is able to accommodate their need for support.
