- The Maine Cancer Foundation, http://mainecancer.org/, an independent Maine based organization dedicated to reducing cancer incidence and mortality rates in Maine.
- Maine Breast Cancer Coalition?s Support Service Fund, https://www.mainebreastcancer.org/support/support.cfm, dedicated to providing financial support for underserved people with breast health or breast cancer needs in Maine.
