The Libby and Kerry families, the Mary's Walk Committee and all our volunteers join the Maine Cancer Foundation in thanking all of our participants, supporters and businesses for another fabulous outcome.
With your help we have raised close to $280,000 to support Maine based cancer research and patient support programs. It is truly a team and community wide effort in the fight against cancer.
Every dollar advances the cause; every step moves us closer to a cure through research. Please join us next year for the 18th Mary's Walk and Kerrymen 5K. Slancha!
Starting Monday night on PBS: "Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies" a documentary based on the award-winning book. We strongly recommend this series to anyone interesting in learning about the history- and future of cancer in our world.
Our special thanks to Stephanie Leonhartt, the winner of our St. Patrick's Day email rally. Stephanie sent out an amazing 238 emails trying to raise donations for Mary's Walk. Great job Stephanie, we really appreciate your effort.

Falmouth, Maine. Maine Cancer Foundation announced 7 Maine-based nonprofit organizations selected to receive $61,000 in grant funding to support critical patient transportation needs across the state.
“A ride can be the only thing that stands between life and death for a cancer patient. Because cancer is a slow-moving disease, it can be easy to overlook transportation issues. But missing a screening appointment, missing a chemotherapy treatment, skipping a follow-up visit because you can’t get a ride, these are small choices with dramatic outcomes.” Said Tara Hill, Executive Director of Maine Cancer Foundation.
Starting March 30th on PBS:
THE STORY OF CANCER: The Emperor of All Maladies examines cancer with a cellular biologist’s precision, a historian’s perspective and a biographer’s passion. The series artfully weaves three different films in one: a riveting historical documentary; an engrossing and intimate vérité film; and a scientific and investigative report.
