This show is a montage of 3 of my favorite Maine non-profit organizations providing updates on where their organizations have been, where they are now and what they need to continue helping so many!
Debby Porter is the Founder & CEO, of the non-profit organization Hair Matters. As a hair stylist, when Debby heard the words, “you have breast cancer” she was not only terrified for her life, but she wondered how she would cope with hair loss. She found there was no place to turn for help with hair loss and during her recovery she vowed to create the kind of help she wasn’t able to find. That’s how Hair Matters was born. Today, Hair Matters works to restore vitality and hope and reduce fear and isolation for all who seek their help by providing emotional support and hair loss solutions in a non-medical setting. You can hear the full interview I did with Debby in Episode 67.
Amie Marzen, founder of Madeline’s Mission joins us to share the story of her beautiful daughter Madeline, whom she lost at just 4 years young to a brain tumor. When Amie found herself in this “child loss club” she felt lost, alone, and scared and couldn’t find the support she and her family needed to help them during this difficult time. That situation motivated her to create this non-profit organization in honor of her daughter so other families will have the support they need while coping with the loss of a child. You can hear the full interview I did with Amie on Episode 33.
Catherine Ann Wilson, founder of Stop Trafficking US, is a child sexual abuse and sex trafficking survivor. Catherine shares her very personal story through a worldwide platform to help prevent what happened to her from happening to other young girls and boys.
