The Medomak Valley All-Sports Boosters 2018 “Paws for
the Cause” fundraiser raised an amazing $6,500 for Maine Breast Cancer Coalition!
The first Annual “Paws for the Cause” game, in conjunction with Lincoln
Academy, was held on January 2. Besides hosting girls and boys "bring out the
pink" basketball games, they also sold $1,600 worth of Pink Paw cards, and
held a 50/50 raffle, t-shirt sale, etc.
You can read more about about “Paws for the Cause”
and see photos from the event on the Medomak Valley All-Sports Boosters Facebook page.
All of us at Maine Breast Cancer Coalition want to thank all
the athletes, their parents, coaches, the booster organizers and all the other volunteers
who made this event possible!

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) seeks to create greater access to health care by getting
more people covered by insurance. For women who have purchased coverage on the Marketplace
or other privately purchased plans, but continue to be burdened by premiums, deductibles
and co-pays that prevent them from receiving breast cancer screening services, the Maine CDC Breast and
Cervical Health Program
(MBCHP) can be a valuable resource for women needing
breast and/or cervical cancer screening and follow-up services.
