BANGOR The Susan G. Komen Maine Race for the Cure - Bangor and Survivor Sponsor Hollywood Casino Hotel & Raceway are proud to honor Survivor of the Week Ruth Susee of Kenduskeag. Susee is celebrating her 15th year being cancer free.

Susee was diagnosed in 1998 with breast cancer after a routine mammogram. "I was absolutely floored when I got a call from the doctor saying they found something and I needed to go see a surgeon," said Susee.

BANGOR Hollywood Casino Hotel & Raceway, Bangor, has issued a check for $2,452 to the Maine Dept. of Agriculture's Animal Welfare Program to be used in the newly-established Standardbred Welfare Support Fund. Hollywood Casino earlier this year announced plans to contribute $1 per starter each racing season, starting this year. The $2,452 check represents $1 for each horse starting at Hollywood Casino's Bangor Raceway between May 4 and July 20, 2013.

"It feels good to be able to contribute to this fund," said Mike Hopkins, manager of Raceway Operations at Hollywood Casino, Bangor. "Standardbred horses are beautiful animals, and they are such an important part of this operation. It's a sad reality that these animals will sometimes need help finding a home that is safe and healthy. This fund will bring the animal to that home, and it's an awfully good cause."
