About Our Organization
A Community Cancer Resource Center
Serving Hancock and Washington Counties
The Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center is named after Beth Charczynski Wright who was born in 1972 and grew up on Beals Island. After being diagnosed with cancer, Beth started a cancer support group in Machias and later founded the Choose Life Foundation shortly before her passing in 2002. The Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center was founded in 2004 through funding from her foundation.
We are a community center dedicated to providing men and women at all stages of the cancer journey with information, inspiration, support, and hope. We strive to be trusted partners who can help patients, family members, and caregivers in Hancock and Washington Counties transition from concern and doubt to hope and wellness.
