Caring Connections is a non-profit collaborative program between the Bangor Region YMCA and Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center. Designed to improve the physical and emotional health and wellness of individuals in Eastern Maine.
For over 20 years, Caring Connections has been providing women of all ages access, education and support. Caring Connections can link women who qualify for a free mammogram, free breast exam and free pap tests.
Caring Connections provides cancer support services to men and women at any stage of diagnosis. We provide services such as attending appointments, host a weekly breast cancer support group and a support group for men through our Men's Cancer Network, as well as the energy therapy of Healing Touch and the free LIVESTRONG at the YMCA exercise program for cancer survivors.
