This year I'll be participating in the 11th Annual Maine Cancer Foundation Tri for a Cure. 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.
As many of you reading this know, this has been a challenging year. My husband's CMML was given a chance for a cure through a stem cell transplant in May 2017. As of this writing he is 300 days post transplant and has received his first set of immunizations. We have been blessed with medical and spiritual success up to this point. By the time I participate in the tri, 2018, he will be able to travel, visit stores and go to restaurants once again.
Thanks to the Maine Cancer Foundation new cures continue to be developed. Thanks for your support.
Every dollar counts! Please consider a donation. Cancer tries but we TRI harder!
