I'm raising money for the Dempsey Center, a Maine-based nonprofit organization with locations in Lewiston and South Portland.
The Dempsey Center makes life better for people managing the impact of cancer by easing the side effects of cancer through complementary therapies, counseling and other support services for individuals and families. There is no charge regardless of financial situation. I am one of those individuals. Dempsey literally helped me get back on my feet after cancer treatment and surgery. I could barely walk after surgery. With a membership to the Y, along with sessions with a personal trainer, I was able to regain my strength. I was able to return to work and had hoped for an amazing ski season. Cancer had other plans for me, however, and these workout sessions got me ready to battle cancer all over again this past winter and spring. Now, Dempsey Center has extended my membership at the Y and I am once again working on regaining my strength. Perhaps for fun...perhaps for yet another battle with cancer. I'll be ready...either way!
Please support me in my fundraising efforts by making a donation.
Every dollar of your donation directly benefits cancer patients, survivors and their families.
