Carol Kurzig, left, president of the Avon Foundation for Women, presents a check to Christine Hayden, breast health outreach patient navigator at the Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope and Healing at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston. The $250,000 grant was part of nearly $3 million in grants the Avon Foundation recently made to 10 New England organizations that serve the needs of breast cancer patients either through research or direct services to patients. The grant to CMMC will provide continued support for the Dempsey Center breast health navigator and allow the purchase of a new dedicated breast ultrasound unit. The Avon Foundation announced the grant during its recent Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in Boston. The walk raised $4.8 million.
