Yesterday's Shoot - Buddy to Buddy - Rumford Hospital

Yesterday my colleague Kim and I shot a Buddy to Buddy PSA at the Rumford Hospital.  Buddy to Buddy is our Breast Cancer Awareness program that encourages women to find a "Buddy" that can reminder her to do a breast self exam every month.  Check it out on our website here:

Dempsey Center Workshop Focuses on Chemotherapy’s Effect on Memory

LEWISTON - The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing at Central Maine Medical Center is offering a free workshop for cancer patients, survivors and caregivers dealing with the effect of chemotherapy on the memory. “Chemotherapy-related Memory and Attention Problems” will take place Friday, May 20 from 1:30 – 3 p.m. at CMMC, 12 High Street in conference room A.
