Maine Cancer Foundation does a great job raising money for cancer research that helps the Maine economy by staying here in Maine. I participated in Tri for a Cure and it was very well run and they were always there to help. I have had a mother and two sisters with breast cancer and many friends and it stinks. I hope a cure is found soon. MCF has some wonderful people working there and I hope someday we will know we were part of the cure!
