This year I'll be participating in the 11th Annual Maine Cancer Foundation Tri for a Cure. As many of you know, Maine is dear to my heart. Maine Cancer Foundation is committed to reducing cancer incidence and mortality rates in Maine, with 100% of funds raised by the Foundation used to benefit the people of Maine. They lead a state-wide effort to advance the most promising and effective cancer-fighting efforts available through a combination of grant-based financial support and coalition building. MCF's Challenge Cancer 2020 initiative is working to reduce cancer incidence and mortality in Maine 20% by 2020 through prevention, screening and early detection, and access to the highest quality care for every Mainer.
Last summer I lost my childhood best friend, Linda, after an 8 week battle with ovarian cancer. This past July my husband Rob had surgery for removal of cancer and then endured 34 radiation treatments in August. I have 2 friends now battling breast cancer. For these people, and many more I do not know, I will raise money, and I will swim, in hopes that in my lifetime we can make huge strides in the fight against cancer. I ask you to join with me in the battle against cancer. Thank you for considering donating to this most worthy cause.
Every dollar counts! Please consider a donation. Cancer tries but we TRI harder!
