We understand cancer treatment can be difficult and uncomfortable. Sometimes it is the little things that help you get through a difficult time.
Our dedicated volunteers create a selection of items to make your journey more comfortable. If you feel you would benefit from one of these comfort items, please fill out the form below.
A Dempsey Center staff member will reach out to you and help arrange picking up your item at either our Lewiston or South Portland location.
