Free Screening Offered For Women With No Insurance

In celebration of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Southern Maine Medical Center and Leavitt’s Mill Health Center will be hosting free healthcare screening days for women ages 40 to 64 who have limited or no insurance. The screenings will include mammograms, pap tests, and clinical examinations

Two free clinics will be offered to the general public:

  • The first on Thursday October 16th from 9am to 3pm, starting with exams at the Leavitt’s Mill facility in Buxton, followed by the breast exam at the SMMC Diagnostic and Therapy Center in Saco.
  • The second on Saturday November 1st from 8am to 12pm at the SMMC Women’s Center in Biddeford. 

According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 184,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer each year, with approximately 1000 in Maine alone. The Southern Maine Medical Center is encouraging all women to be screened, and is generously donating their time and resources to help educate women of all ages.

For more information on the free healthcare screening, please visit, or to schedule an appointment call 985-1028.

Better to Give

With five convenient office locations and a statewide practice, The Law Offices of Joe Bornstein provides Mainers from across the state with access to justice.  But helping Mainers get the justice they deserve is just the tip of the iceberg for our law firm in trying to make the great state of Maine even better.

In addition to providing thoughtful and quality representation to over 15,000 clients in 34 years of practice, The Law Offices of Joe Bornstein is proud to give back to its fellow Mainers through philanthropic and charitable donations.
  We see firsthand the hardships and disabilities some of our clients have, and it's both a blessing and pleasure for us to be able to give back to our community.

In 2007, The Law Offices of Joe Bornstein donated to 48 separate organizations, including:

We see each day that not everyone is as fortunate as we are, and that's why we make it a point to give back to our community.  In addition to charitable donations, our employees have also volunteered their time serving warm meals at the Preble Street Resource Center and reading to students at the Reiche School in Portland. 

The charitable giving of one law firm can make a small impact in a community, but together we can make a substantial one. We hope everyone takes the time to help those less fortunate, and to help make Maine the state we know and love.

Charitable giving feels good, but more importantly it does good!
