Free ME from Lung Cancer

Northern Light Mercy Hospital sponsors the annual Save Your Breath 5K. All proceeds raised from this event stay in Maine to help support early lung cancer screening and the purchase of Radon Air Abatement Systems to go to single-family low-income homeowners. In addition to a partnership with Northern Light Mercy Hospital, Free ME from Lung Cancer is currently working with other Maine healthcare providers to identify patients in need of early lung cancer screening. Additionally, Free ME from Lung Cancer continues to partner with the Community Action Programs through the State of Maine to identify those in need of radon air abatement systems. In 2021, the Save Your Breath 5k and live auction/dinner raised $88,263 to help support these vital community services.
