For this month's Challenge Cancer 2020 feature, our partners at WMTW-TV highlight the financial burden of a cancer diagnosis for Mainers. The story also includes one of Maine Cancer Foundation's 2016 transportation grant recipients at the Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing.

Your generous support helps ease the financial burden for cancer patients throughout our beautiful state. Thank you!

Challenge Cancer 2020 is our visionary initiative to cut cancer rates in Maine by 2020. Our goal for a Maine less burdened by cancer requires active participation from people and communities across the state. Our success depends on inviting key stakeholders to the table to share strategy, tactics, and experience.

We recently sat down with one of our stakeholders: Michael Reisman, Executive Director of the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center (BCWCRC) in Ellsworth. Since 2010, BCWCRC has received three Maine Cancer Foundation grants to support access to care for Downeast cancer patients. Currently, BCWCRC along with Healthy Acadia are in the first year of a three-year grant to fund two part-time cancer patient navigators in Washington County. Reisman also serves on the Leadership Roundtable for Maine’s Impact Cancer Network (a statewide initiative, currently led by Maine Cancer Foundation), in order to address the high rates of cancer in the state.
