Darling’s Auto Group’s $10,300 gift brings hair preservation campaign closer to goal

Date: 12/19/2019

Darling’s Auto Group recently presented a $10,300 check to the Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center Foundation to support the campaign to bring technology to Northern Light Cancer Care that will help women keep more of their hair during chemotherapy treatment. Darling’s Auto Group donated to the campaign on behalf of customers who bought vehicles on certain days in October.

Darlings-Check-presentation-(1).jpg“We’re grateful for Darling’s generous support in helping patients maintain a little bit more control over their cancer treatment journey,” says Kimberly Lieber, MD, a breast cancer surgeon at Northern Light Cancer Care. “Hair loss can affect a patient’s attitude toward treatment because it’s such a big part of a person’s identity. This technology will improve our patients' lives."

Darling's generous donation brings the campaign total to nearly $50,000. To learn more and contribute, please visit northernlighthealth.org/beautifulhair.
