Mission

Maine Cancer Foundation is a non-profit 501c(3) organization dedicated to improving the health and well being of Maine people by funding cancer research, education and patient support programs. 100% of the funds raised remain in Maine.

Maine Cancer Foundation is unique in its top-to-bottom approach to fighting cancer. While research makes up the core of our grant funding program, each year Maine Cancer Foundation provides financial support to dozens of patient and education programs state-wide.

Although difficult, cancer is not an insurmountable problem. Today, because of the efforts of those who have come before us, there are effective treatments for several types of cancer and the promise of more to come. We believe that by finding and supporting the best efforts in cancer research, education and patient support, we can help to build a future where cancer is no longer a deadly threat.
