There is a strong possibility that you or someone you know has been touched by cancer. Did you know that men have a one in two chance of developing cancer in their lifetime and women have a one in three chance? In 2021, the Dartmouth Cancer Center at Cheshire Medical Center provided cancer care to more than 2,600 patients. For these patients and MJ, you can make a difference today.

For Mary Jane (MJ) Doody, the odds became a reality when she was recently diagnosed with breast cancer last year. Her family has a history of the disease; MJ's cancer is the same type that her mother fought.

There weren't any lumps or bumps," MJ says. "They found it during my annual mammogram. And then suddenly I found myself with a cancer counselor, going for a biopsy, and then meeting my surgeon, Dr. Burman, at Cheshire's Breast Center."

Following a lumpectomy, MJs recovery is going well. She and her team of care providers anticipate that after radiation treatments, which will eradicate any remaining cancer cells, she will be declared cancer-free.

For the past 13 years, MJ has been integral to Cheshire's fundraising efforts in support of patients receiving treatment at the Medical Center's Norris Cotton Cancer Center - Kingsbury Pavilion.

I am most inspired by the giving. What people need to understand is how important it is to participate. The amount you give isn't what matters, just the fact that you join in, " MJ says.

Cheshire Cancer Care benefits the Patient Relief & Cancer Care Funds. When you make a donation, it helps support cancer patients during at an extremely vulnerable time in their lives. Your gift can help ensure that a patient is able to continue traveling to their daily radiation treatments, or it might help pay for medication that isn't covered by insurance.

Participating in Cheshire Cancer Care also means that you help the Medical Center fund fund specialized equipment and a weekly cancer support group. and other care items to make cancer treatment as comfortable as possible. Past purchases have included heated chemotherapy infusion chairs, a blanket warmer, a breast board for radiation treatments, and a patient lift. Taking the stress and discomfort out of treatment and making support services possible is a gift you can help give to Cheshire's cancer patients.

Every dollar raised through Cheshire Cancer Care stays here in our community and makes a real difference!
