The Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center provides compassion, support, wellness groups, advocacy and education for patients, families, and friends in the midst of a cancer diagnosis, treatment and/or remission. We strive to enhance cooperation, collaboration, and connection among medical providers, other nonprofit groups, social support, and educational resources in Hancock and Washington counties. Established in 2004 and located in Ellsworth, the non-profit resource center was born from an organization created by Beth C. Wright, who died of breast cancer in 2000. Over the years, our educational, supportive, and wellness programs have expanded to several additional locations in Washington and Hancock counties.

A cancer diagnosis can shake up your world. There isn’t a standard emotional response – you might be experiencing disbelief, shock, fear, or anger, and you might not know where to turn for support.
The Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center in Ellsworth is one of only three freestanding cancer resource centers in Maine. It serves Hancock and Washington Counties where the incidence, prevalence, and mortality rates for cancer far exceed both the state and national averages. The Beth C. Wright Center is the place to turn for education and support in making sense of a cancer diagnosis and proceeding with your life.
The Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center provides a comfortable place for cancer patients, families, and friends to meet their educational and emotional needs. Our staff is almost entirely volunteer; professionals and caring community members donate their time to offer classes, meetings, and programs that are free to people with cancer, their families, and friends. We offer books, brochures, video and audio tapes as well as a computer with access to the internet.
Our center is a place of serenity and compassion for all. We serve both Hancock and Washington Counties. The Center is open from 9 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday all year round.
