LINCOLN, Maine (NEWS CENTER)-- Breast cancer has affected the lives of so many people in Maine, including young children, who often watch loved ones struggle with treatment and cope with the disease.
One little girl from Lincoln decided that instead of being a bystander, she would take action. At age seven she has already raised more than $600 dollars for Susan G. Komen for the cure, and she is not ready to stop yet.
NEWS CENTER's Jessica Gagne has Olivia Ubanski's story in this month's Buddy to Buddy segment here: http://www.wlbz2.com/buddytobuddy/article/270030/23/Buddy-to-Buddy-Small-hands-big-heart.
ORONO, Maine (NEWS CENTER)-- For the last two years, the UMaine women's head basketball coach, Richard Barron, has shaved his head as an incentive for fans to donate to breast cancer research. This year, he is at it again.
Barron says If the team raises over $10,000 for the Play for Kay cancer fund by February 9th, he will shave his head. And this year, he has added a twist, if the money is raised before the team's game against Binghamton, he will dye his hair pink before the game. Coach Barron feels its the least he can do to help put an end to breast cancer.

Sugarloaf Snowcat Spreading Breast Cancer Awareness
CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- If you've hit the slopes at Sugarloaf lately, you've likely seen the newest addition to their grooming fleet: a pink snowcat.
Pinky, as she's known by some, was meant to bring more awareness to breast cancer as she grooms the snow, but she's also inspiring donations to local cancer foundations.
Pinky is adorned with the well-known pink ribbon and the names of local cancer centers that are funded by one of Sugarloaf's biggest fundraisers of the year: the Sugarloaf Charity Summit. All proceeds from the events all day and night benefit the Martha B. Webber Breast Care Center and the Maine Cancer Foundation. Click here for more information.
