Review for Maine Cancer Foundation, Falmouth, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a two time breast cancer survivor. When I lived in Gorham, Maine Cancer Foundation provided my follow up treatment and checkups for my first cancer. I now live in Texas, but for the last 3 years I have sponsored some of the women from Village School in Gorham who have run in the Tri For A Cure. I think it is a great cause and (even though I live in Texas), I love that the Maine Cancer Foundation keeps the money in Maine. Their website makes it easy to donate and I'm able to keep in touch with old friends and co-workers from Maine. I even entered the poster contest and although it wasn't chosen, one of the teams picked up my poster drawing and have incorporated it into their Tee-shirt that they wear at the Tri. So from a gal who lives in Texas, but still has part of her heart in Maine: "Bravo Maine Cancer Foundation -- Keep Up The Good Work". And thank you for your continued effort to fund the research for a cure of cancer!

Review for Maine Cancer Foundation, Falmouth, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Since Your Role would not let me pick two, I picked Donor even though I was also a client (of sorts). Actually I have had breast cancer twice, once in 2002 and once just this last October, 2013. Both times I was living in Texas. But I moved to Maine in 2006 and lived there for 5 years. While I was there I received wonderful follow up care from Dr. Tracey Weisberg. My care was exceptional. I have many friends that I left behind in Gorham and they comprise several of the teams that participate in each years Tri-For-A-Cure....so I am proud each year to sponsor them. I miss Maine a lot even though I am from Texas. Maine is a wonderful place to live.....and has the perfect slogan "Life The Way It Should Be". Maine Cancer Foundation does a wonderful job every year with their activities to raise money. Their dedication to helping find a cure is exemplary. Thank you for letting me be part of your group....even from a distance.
