New Help and Hope for Cancer Patients and Their Families...Join Us and Help Champion the Cure

04/13/2009

(Bangor, ME) –Most of us can say we know and love someone touched by cancer. In fact, Maine has the highest cancer incidence rate in the nation. The region served by EMMC has the highest rates of cancer in Maine. EMMC’s CancerCare of Maine provides treatment to more than 7,000 patients every year who reside in the northern two-thirds of Maine.

Come see what we’re doing to turn around Maine’s top rating by providing both better access to high quality care and heightened opportunities for new discoveries about what might be driving our cancer rates.

EMMC’s CancerCare of Maine and the Maine Institute for Human Genetics and Health invite you to the site of our new cancer and research center in Brewer. Join us on Thursday April 16, 2009 for the kick off for Champion the Cure the community campaign for advancing cancer care and cancer research. We need your help to make this happen.
