Last week, Rosemarie (Ro) LeGasse, the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition's dedicated Support Service Fund program assistant, and Ro's uncle, Gene Moreau, had the pleasure of meeting long-term donor Darlene Gleba in Rockland.
Every year since 2011, Darlene and her husband John have been major donors to the Support Service Fund through fundraising at their annual Gleba Open golf tournaments. Click here to read about the 2019 tournament.
All of us at Maine Breast Cancer Coalition are so appreciative of the Gleba's generosity!

In recognition of “Breast Cancer Awareness Month” this past October, Hannaford supermarkets throughout Maine made it easy for their customers to help Maine residents with unmet breast cancer or breast health-related needs.
For the sixth consecutive year, during October, Maine Hannaford customers were able to donate $2 or $5 at the register of their local stores, raising $7,478.94 for the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition!
Earlier this year, Hannaford Supermarkets donated $2,500 worth of food cards to
the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition. These are being awarded to qualified Support
Service Fund applicants who need support for living expenses and nutrition while
in breast cancer treatment.
Maine Breast Cancer Coalition is grateful to Hannaford Supermarkets for their support and to all the generous shoppers who made donations. These donations will make a difference in the lives of Maine residents in need.

They raised an amazing $2,406 for the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition’s Support
Service Fund in just one day! That brings the three-year total of funds raised
at the tournaments to well over $8,000! All proceeds were donated to MBCC’s Support Service Fund and will help Maine residents
with unmet breast cancer or breast health related needs.
All of us at Maine Breast Cancer Coalition are grateful to the owners of DND Disc Golf and all those who took part in the fundraiser!
