ELLSWORTH — The Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center has been awarded a $25,000 grant from the Maine Cancer Foundation in Falmouth.
The Beth C. Wright Center serves both Hancock and Washington counties and is one of a few free-standing cancer resource centers in Maine.
The general, unrestricted operating grant will enable the center to continue to provide and expand the valuable resources it offers to those in need.
Staff members help cancer patients and their loved ones navigate through the cancer journey and beyond by offering educational resources, home-delivered meals made by volunteers at Home-Cooked Healing and more.
The center also offers cancer survivor and caregiver support groups, healthy cooking demonstration classes, complementary therapies to help ease the side effects of cancer treatment and stress and two annual cancer conferences.
