Stanley Subaru on Tuesday presented a check for $3,210 to Maine Coast Memorial Hospital’s Breast Health Clinic. The money was raised during the auto dealer’s 15th anniversary in October when, as part of the celebration, the dealership dedicated $15 for every test drive taken all month directly to diagnostic testing at Maine Coast Memorial. People from as far as Winthrop, Mass., took test drives to support local Maine cancer care.

“Maine Coast Memorial Hospital greatly appreciates the ongoing support from this Stanley Subaru initiative. Th e funds support patients who are underinsured or uninsured and are referred by a medical provider for a mammogram or other diagnostic testing (ultrasound) related to breast health,” said Jack Frost, executive director of Maine Coast Healthcare Foundation.
Also on Tuesday, several members of the Stanley Subaru team, including Dealer Principal Mark Politte, visited the hospital to give staff at the Breast Health Clinic and the Mary Dow Center for Cancer Care crab-shaped cookies — a treat for the people who treat the community.
“I prefer ‘Eating cancer’s lunch,’” said Politte. “Early detection saves lives, and by providing that opportunity to people, we’re giving people more power over cancer. We chose crab-shaped cookies because cancer is named after Cancer the crab, and there’s something satisfying about taking a bite right out of it. It doesn’t hurt that they’re delicious.”
