Cancer Patient Transportation Grants Announced
This spring, Maine Cancer Foundation awarded funding to six Maine organizations in an effort to increase access to care for cancer patients in our state. The six organizations received a combined total of $79,000 in grant funding.
Due to Maine’s rural and diverse geography, many cancer patients struggle to get the care they need given the distance they must travel for treatment. Maine Cancer Foundation is one of only a few organizations in our state dedicated to helping cancer patients with transportation. We are proud to support this work and are committed to addressing transportation challenges for cancer patients in Maine.
