2021 Tri for a Cure

Support Me

It's time to TRI!

I am participating in the 14th Annual Maine Cancer Foundation Tri for a Cure. I am a 16 year Breast Cancer Survivor and I am honored to be participating in my 6th 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.

During the pandemic, cancer unfortunately didn't slow down like the rest of the world. 1 in 4 Mainers will face a cancer diagnosis. But we have a chance to change that. It's more important than ever that we continue to provide support to patients statewide to ensure that everyone is able to access the best care possible. Thank you for joining me in supporting MCF and ensuring that their efforts to increase screening and prevention rates continue while also providing critical funding for patient care.

We all know far too many people that have been affected by cancer. I know that treatments have improved greatly since I was diagnosed but I am still losing people I know and love. We can do more, we must do more, I will TRI harder! 

#KFG (thanks Trevor!)

This year as I swim, bike, and run, I will do so with love and strength in memory of Althea, Jan, Annie, Jude, & Kathy.

 And it is with a very heavy heart that I have to update this page and add Michele to this list. I will be running Sunday 7/18 at the in-person Tri for a Cure 5K in memory of these strong and courageous women. 

Thank you very much for taking the time to consider making a donation.

Cancer tries but I will TRI harder! ALWAYS!
