In our latest blog series called Snapshots, we turn to Maine Cancer Foundation constituents - from staff, board members and other volunteers, donors, grant recipients and beyond - to share important moments in their lives related to cancer. Our series will paint a broad stroke of the cancer landscape in the state, while narrowing the focus into the rare and intimate moments that bring us all together.
For this month's Challenge Cancer 2020 feature, our partners at WMTW-TV highlighted one of Maine Cancer Foundation's 2016 colorectal screening grant recipients at MaineGeneral Medical Center in Waterville.
Your generous support helps prevent countless colorectal cancer diagnoses throughout our beautiful state. Thank you!
In honor of National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, Maine Cancer Foundation staff wore navy blue clothing - the official color of colorectal cancer awareness.
Ken Janson is a remarkable person. He’s been an important member of the Mary’s Walk Planning Committee since 2001, and during that time, he has donated countless hours to the fight against cancer. Be it fate, irony, or tragic consequence, Ken was diagnosed with esophageal cancer this past November and is now undergoing both radiation and chemotherapy. His unrelenting dedication to our event has been an inspiration for me during the 19 years that Mary’s Walk has remembered my wife’s death in 1997 from Burkett’s Lymphoma.
