A check for $9,000 representing proceeds from the 2016 Brian's Ride New Year's Eve Bash held at the Caribou Inn and Convention Center, was recently presented to the Jefferson Cary Foundation, to assist patients receiving cancer care at the Jefferson Cary Cancer Center, (JCCC).  Brian's Ride was organized by family members and friends in memory of Brian Caldwell, a self-employed carpenter who passed away from cancer on May 22, 2014.

He was diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer on September 6, 2013, and like so many living here in the County; he had no means to pay the high cost of cancer care and was used to helping others, not being the one who needed help.

Cary Medical Center Completes $1.5 Million Dollar Room Renovation Project Caribou’s Largest Employer Uses Local Contractors to Complete Work

In 1978 Cary Medical Center opened its doors at the hospital's current Route 1 location with a new, state-of-the-art medical facility for Caribou and surrounding area residents. At the time, looking to keep the culture and tradition of providing personal, patient and family centered care, local hospital officials, architects and planners had the foresight and vision to create only single-private inpatient rooms for the brand new hospital.

Fast forward to 2016, and again working with all local contractors and construction crews, a $1.5 million renovation project upgrading all of Cary's Acute Care Unit, (ACU) rooms and nurses station, was completed in August.

"We've spent considerable time and effort redesigning our entire Acute Care Unit to make it even more comfortable and patient-pleasing," explained Shawn Anderson, Cary Chief Operating Officer and Project Administrator. "Further, we've sought the collective input of our team of talented and dedicated clinicians to ensure that they are best able to deliver the quality healthcare that Cary is known for in a manner that is staff-friendly and ergonomically safe. What we spent over a year planning, has now become reality."

Downeast Defenders Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club Donates To Cary Camp Adventure

Several members of the Downeast Chapter of the Defenders Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club recently made the trip up Route 1 from Machias to Cary Medical Center to make a $1,000 donation to Camp Adventure.

This is the third year the Washington County Downeast Chapter has had a Charity Ride Event to raise funds for Camp Adventure.

Camp Adventure is a week long summer camp for teens with Type 1 diabetes that provides campers the opportunity to hike, camp, canoe, bike, kayak, swim and participate in other outdoor activities while helping them with monitoring and self-management of their diabetes.   "The goal of Camp Adventure is for campers to have fun while learning that diabetes doesn't control you, but that you control diabetes," explained Camp Coordinator and Cary Certified Diabetes Educator, Erica Ouellette, RN, BSN.

Celebrating its 20th year, Camp Adventure was held this past June at Baptist Park in Mapleton.

"We started our Charity Ride Event about six years ago originally donating our funds to the American Diabetes Association," explained Club President Keith Albee. "But we wanted to find something local to support. After doing some online research we found information about Camp Adventure and decided that's what we wanted to ride for," he said.

Keith's wife Susan, also a club member, has Type 1 Diabetes, so their fundraising efforts have a special meaning to all those participating.

The national Defenders Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club was started in 2004 and is comprised of active and retired members of law enforcement, the military, emergency services and public safety professionals who enjoy riding motorcycles.
