…helps people get the cancer care they need, changes lives, and helps save lives. For many Mainers faced with a cancer diagnosis, life seems to stop.
They suddenly find themselves in a raging storm of emotions, treatment choices, and financial challenges. For some, they have tough decisions to make about where, and when, to receive care.
There are many others who opt to forgo treatment. They do so because long, frequent trips to Brewer cause physical and financial burdens on both the patients and their families.
Sarah’s House serves all these people, and makes much-needed treatment options more accessible to those who would otherwise choose not to travel.
2016 Cancer Survivors Day
Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow.
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.
Cancer is so limited…
It cannot cripple love, It cannot shatter hope, It cannot corrode faith, It cannot destroy peace, It cannot kill friendship, It cannot suppress memories, It cannot silence courage, It cannot invade the soul
It cannot steal eternal life, It cannot conquer the spirit

Everyone can be great because anyone can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t even have to make your subject and and your verb agree to serve… You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love. – Martin Luther King Jr.
