The Day of Hope is a day of inspiration and celebration. It includes, a ceremony honoring our cancer community, our annual Walk for Hope, education and screening opportunities – all with the common goal of celebrating our cancer community and supporting the work and patients at the Harold Alfond Center for Cancer Care (HACCC).

The HACCC, located in Augusta, Maine, provides cancer care to 12% of Maine's cancer patients.

Your support makes a huge difference! Each dollar raised goes to supporting the ever-growing needs of the HACCC, such as:

  • Food insecurity, transportation assistance and other patient needs
  • Patient navigation and financial services
  • Expanded patient access to care through partnerships with Redington-Fairview General Hospital and Franklin Memorial Hospital
  • Expansion of our open access clinic, same-day access exclusively for the urgent care of our cancer patients
  • Equipment and technology upgrades
  • Expanded access to telehealth services
