Eastern Maine Cancer Series - Survivorship: Surviving To Thriving

11/17/2020 09:00 AM - 11/19/2020 12:30 PM ET


This year has brought many challenges to in-person events and programs held for the cancer community. For the past many years, The Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center and The Christine B. Foundation held important programs in-person- giving access to resources and offering empowerment to those who have received a cancer diagnosis. Though these social distancing concerns need to be followed, the voices of our cancer community are stronger than ever, reminding us we can come together in new ways.


The Down East Living With Cancer Conference, Washington County Cancer Conference, and Bangor Region Cancer Conference are joining forces to create the Eastern Maine Cancer Series - a virtual experience happening through Zoom from November 17-19. This new partnership will bring much-needed resources, education, and support to people affected by a cancer diagnosis that will help them navigate the challenges they are facing at this difficult time. Come for one series, or come for all five!
