Make a Difference
The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing provides free support, education and integrative medicine services to cancer patients, families and caregivers.
In 2008, Patrick Dempsey generously provided the initial funding for the Dempsey Center. The Dempsey Challenge was created in 2009 and is the primary fundraiser, helping to sustain the free services of the Center. We invite you to join in this effort by supporting The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing.
Your financial support is critical to maintain free support services & programs, allowing cancer patients, survivors and caregivers to focus on healing rather than economic concerns.
Register for the Dempsey Challenge and help raise needed funds for the Dempsey Center. The Dempsey Challenge is an annual run, walk and cycling experience held in Lewiston-Auburn, Maine. More than a fundraiser, the Challenge is an impactful, emotional and memorable experience…a weekend you’ll never forget!
