Support me in the fight against cancer!
This year I'll be participating in the 14th Annual Maine Cancer Foundation Tri for a Cure. Although the event is virtual this year, there are over 1400 participants. Along with these other women I will bike, swim and run to raise money that will be reinvested into Maine communities for cancer prevention, early detection and access to care.
I am taking on this challenge this year to honor my own friends and family who have suffered, died and survived a cancer diagnosis.
I do not takes this opportunity lightly. I am very fortunate to be able to participate this year. As many of you know, after a visit to the dermatologist in 2019 I was diagnosed with stage III Melanoma. After surgery and treatment for a year I am happy to say I am NED (No Evidence of Disease) and excited to participate in a great cause!
On behalf of those who are currently battling cancer and those that have lost the battle, I am pledging 1500. I am asking for your help in reaching my goal!
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.
During the pandemic, cancer has persisted. 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.
