Northeast Air kicked off Breast Cancer Awareness Month by presenting representatives from Maine Breast Cancer Coalition with a check from the company's fundraising efforts. Team NEA was able to raise $810 in employee donations for the fight against breast cancer. With the matching donation from co-owners Henry and Linda Laughlin, the grand total donation was $1,620 for our Support Service Fund.
We were so pleased to meet the generous owners and employees of Northeast Air. WMTW Channel 8 was there to video the event.

Breast cancer patients need support as they navigate the steps of survivorship.
If you have walked the journey as a breast cancer survivor, let your voice be heard
at a forum to help envision, create, and move ahead a new breast cancer survivorship
EMMC Cancer Care would like to know what survivorship topics are important to you. From diet and exercise to mental, emotional, and sexual health. What are you looking for in education, support groups, and community programs?
Please share your thoughts at EMMC Cancer Care’s free community discussion with A. Merrill Garrett, MD, oncologist, EMMC Cancer Care, and the team of doctors, nurse practitioners, and nurses caring for breast cancer survivors.
Light refreshments will be served. Event is 6:00-7:30 pm. Doors open at 5:30 pm. Registration is required by filling out the form here or by calling 973-7483.
