Dempsey Center’s Healing Tree Offers Teen Program Through MCF Grant

The Healing Tree Children’s Program of the Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing received a $3,000 grant from the Maine Cancer Foundation (MCF) which will be used for ‘Space to Breathe,’ a five-day wilderness adventure program for adolescents, ages 13-17, impacted by a parent or sibling’s cancer. The program will take place August 5 – 11 at Camp Kieve in Nobleboro, Maine.

Space to Breathe will include a three-day wilderness trip, camping and rope course initiatives. Participants will have a chance to build lasting relationships with other teens facing similar circumstances. There are eight spaces available for each group and registration is based on a first-come, first-served basis.

“We are so excited to offer this opportunity,” said Dempsey Center Children’s Program Coordinator Tookie Bright. “Last year we offered the program to adolescents who have a sibling with cancer and it was a great success.

Feed Maine Food Drive - May 5th 2012

On May 5th join WCSH6 & WLBZ2 at Hannaford Supermarkets in Sanford on Main Street; Augusta on Cony Street; Auburn on Spring Street; in Scarborough in OakHill Plaza, and in Bangor by the Airport Mall , broadcasting live as we host food drives for Feed ME 2012.  All donations will go to Good Shepherd Food-Bank.

According to the USDA over 15% of Mainers, or in other words 200,000 people, are at risk of hunger.  Nearly 25% of the children here in Maine are food insecure – meaning they do not have access to nutritious food, thus preventing the opportunity to lead a healthier life.  Nearly 40% of the people served by Good Shepherd are children; and sadly the number of food insecure in Maine alone has increased by nearly 25% since 2005. 

Some of the most needed foods are:

  • Canned Items: meats, vegetables & beans, and fruit
  • Instant Potatoes & Rice
