A special thank you to the Portland Seadogs and the Mother's Day 5K for a very generous contribution of $6,000 to continue the fight against cancer in Maine. One of our board members, Dr. Gayle Brazeau (pictured far left) was on hand to receive the contribution at Hadlock Field.
We need your help!
There are two fantastic community events coming up and we're looking for an army of volunteer to make it all happen:
Portland, Maine. On Wednesday, May 11th we were fortunate to welcome Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee to the stage of the Abromson Center at the University of Southern Maine for a fascinating lecture covering his Pulitzer Prize-winning book, "The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer."
In the course of the evening Dr. Mukherjee covered the history of cancer, including a native Maine boy, Einar Gustafson (later nicknamed "Jimmy"), who would go on to become the inspiration for The Jimmy Fund at the Dana-Farber Institute.
