The members of the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition were heartbroken to hear that Penny died on Saturday, July 22, 2017, at the Androscoggin Hospice House, after living with metastatic breast cancer for several years. We are so thankful for the time we spent with Penny and for her dedication to the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition. We extend our deepest condolences to Penny's husband, Kevin, her son, Chris, stepdaughter, Kate, and all of her extended family and friends.
We were all very blessed to have known her and will continue to advocate for all those living with and at risk of breast cancer to honor her memory.

Smith & Wilkinson, Scarborough, one of the country’s premier executive search and leadership consulting organizations, continued its strong support and commitment of giving back with a $2,500 contribution to the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition.
“Giving back is an important part of our culture and builds upon our commitment to making a difference, whether it’s using our skills and experience to match companies and talent, or contributing to non-profit organizations that help others. We are pleased to recognize and support the positive impact that the MBCC makes through this contribution,” said Carll Wilkinson, Managing Partner of Smith & Wilkinson.
Wilkinson said the company dedicates a generous portion of its net profits annually to charitable giving. In 2018, Smith & Wilkinson contributed more than $25,000 to non-profits in multiple states.
All of us at Maine Breast Cancer Coalition are grateful for Smith and Wilkinson’s support!
