For the third consective year, F. R. Carroll Concrete of Limerick, a family-owned business, donated a dollar for every cubic yard of concrete they produced in the month of October to the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition. This year's donation was $5,180 for our Support Service Fund.
In 2013, Mike Carroll wrote about the story behind the pink truck and his company's goal to support Maine Breast Cancer Coalition's work. Read his story here.
Maine Breast Cancer Coalition is grateful for F. R. Carroll's generosity and ongoing support!
Currently, Medicare and many private insurance policies fail to cover the costs of the daily compression supplies people with lymphedema need to control their swelling. People who can’t afford these supplies are left with worsening lymphedema, which can lead to infections and even long-term disability.
