A big congrats to Natural Resources Council of Maine, who helped us rally more than 500 “Check In” supporters to earn $500 for their organization. Thank you all!
An example of their fine efforts – NRCM holds a press conference TODAY 11:30AM at the State House in Augusta to support maintaining high energy efficiency standards in building.
This June, we’re honored to support the Maine Children’s Cancer Program (MCCP), a Scarborough-based treatment center where children with cancer and their families, from across Maine and New Hampshire, find the highest quality medical care, along with support, love and hope. The goal of the program is to help keep cancer from getting in the way of letting kids be kids.
Maine Children’s Cancer Program
With four pediatric hematology/oncology physicians, a nurse practitioner, and a team of specialized nurses, social workers and research associates, MCCP offers a wealth of resources to young patients and their families in a caring and close-to-home setting. They also feature an exceptional research program, including involvement in clinical research trials through Children’s Oncology Group (COG) which offer access to the latest and best therapies under investigation for children.
The team at MCCP treats all types of childhood cancers, including:
- Leukemia, including acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), the most common childhood cancer, and acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), also called acute myeloid leukemia
- Brain tumor
- Sarcoma (cancerous tumors involving the bones and soft tissues)
- Lymphoma, including Hodgkin’s lymphoma and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
- Liver cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Retinoblastoma (a malignant tumor of the retina)
- Germ cell tumor
