Meet five year old Abel. Abel and his mom, Lisa, travel from Parkman in Piscataquis County to Eastern Maine Medical Center‘s Raish Peavey Haskell Children’s Cancer and Treatment Center in Brewer every Friday for Abel’s treatments. And, in an inspiring show of support for this incredible kid with a bright smile, his classmates at Piscataquis Community School in Guilford and others in the MSAD #4 community hosted a special movie night fundraiser to raise money to make sure the doctors and nurses at the Raish Peavey Haskell Children’s Cancer and Treatment Center have the resources they need to care for kids, like Abel.

On Friday, just as his treatment was starting, Abel, along with his mom, presented us with a check for $606! Thank you, Abel, and thank you Abel’s friends from the Picataquis Community School. We truly appreciate your kindness and generosity.

Eastern Maine Medical Center is one of our EMHS Foundation Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in Bangor.
