BREWER – Cancer is never an easy thing to go through but the folks at Eastern Maine Medical Center are helping patients stay close to home.
Close to 3,000 people gathered at the Lafayette Family Cancer Center for the 8th Annual Champion the Cure Challenge.
This event brings people who have been impacted by cancer together to benefit local cancer research and the global fight against cancer.
“In the back of your mind, you always think ‘that won’t happen to me, it could happen to other people,” said Gert Nesin, “So the first thing is getting over that idea that it can happen to you. It can happen to anyone.”
As of Saturday morning, they are looking at reaching their goal of raising $600,000.
