Time, Treasure, & Talent
There are approximately 1,400 newly diagnosed MEN with prostate cancer in Maine every year and nearly 200 Maine men annually die from this disease. The Maine Coalition to Fight Prostate Cancer is attempting to help as many of these men and their loved ones as we can. But WE need your help as well. Whether it is your time, your special talent or your treasure please help reduce the terrible burden of this disease in Maine. Please call or email us at if you have been touched by prostate cancer in some way and would like to make a difference.
We have current needs for the following tasks:
- Help us set up and manage free prostate cancer screenings. (Although it is not a requirement, anyone with prior experience in healthcare and an interest in saving lives is encouraged to apply.)
- Complete a review of our accounting records. Anyone who is a CPA is encouraged to call us.
- Assist us in reaching more people through social media.
- Establish a closed group on Facebook for prostate cancer survivors and then manage it.
- Establish a closed group on LinkedIn for prostate cancer survivors and then manage it.
- Distribute press releases.
- Distribute public service announcements.
- Represent the Maine Coalition to Fight Prostate Cancer at different venues.
- Help establish a prostate cancer network within your fraternal organization; get the word out that there is a group to help current members.
- Locate venues that will accept our brochures and then keep them supplied.
- Keep brochures on prostate cancer available in local libraries.
