Improving Cancer Patient Outcomes in Maine:

Together, we can face the unique cancer challenges of Maine and ensure our friends and family receive the best possible care.

Challenges for Maine’s Cancer Patients:

  • Cancer care is complicated and patients need experienced guides to help them through key decisions about treatment, as well as crucial planning around insurance and medication.
     
  • Maine’s unique geographic, demographic and economic challenges create barriers to care for patients in need of testing, treatment and recovery services.
     
  • Less than 3% of cancer patients join a clinical trial. Lack of participation slows the testing of new medications and treatments.
