Planting Memory Mums at CMMC


Gathering at CMMC to help plant mums are (l. to r.) Spruce Bay Farm and Landscape co-owners Erin Jones and Glenn Bolduc, Dempsey Center Assistant Director Mary Dempsey, WHA vice-president and project chairperson June van Mourik, WHA president and project co-chair Sharon Poulin, WHA board member Terry MacLean, and CMMC medical imaging manager and Cindy Harradon.

The Central Maine Medical Center Woman’s Hospital Association Memory Mums Project is raising money for three cancer-related services: the Dempsey Center; the Bennett Breast Care Center, funding free mammograms for underinsured or uninsured patients; and the Rydholm Center’s Cancer Care Immediate Needs Fund.

The Memory Mums Project was inspired by the late Amanda Dempsey, an avid gardener and the mother of Patrick Dempsey, founder of the Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing. Four hundred mums have been planted at the hospital’s 60 High Street entrance. Personalized memorial placards, available through the weekend of the Dempsey Challenge on October 17 and 18, may be purchased and placed next to a mum for $15.

To order a memorial placard, contact the WHA through the WHA Gift Shop at 795-2295 or by emailing Forms are also available at the WHA Gift Shop in the hospital’s Main Lobby at 60 High Street.
