Our Story:


From our inception, CBF has believed in finding well suited care to cancer patients and their families. Founded in 2014 as a single fundraising run to support surrounding organizations, CBF has since evolved into a foundation with multiple programs directed to connect our cancer community. 

At 47, Christine B. Dexter lost her battle to stomach cancer. Christine was a loving wife, mother, sister, and friend to many. Her biggest legacy was her passion to build strong relationships between family and communities as a whole. With all of the lessons learned from Chris, her son Matt Dexter, founded CBF to not only help families and individuals get through the hardships that Chris and so many others struggle with, but to unite Maine to better serve people, just as Christine would. 

Who was Christine B. Dexter?

Christine was a loving wife, mother, sister, and friend to many. She spent the later part of her life living in Acton, MA with her family. Christine was the individual you saw making sure everyone else was comfortable before herself. Not only helping her family and friends through the highs and lows of life, but Christine went above and beyond. She had a career in social work, volunteered with local nonprofits, elementary schools, and her children's sport teams. Not to mention she always had a candy ready to give to the toll booth attendee to brighten their day. She was 47 years young when her life ended to stomach cancer, in 2008. CBF is lead by values Christine believed in, and with her memory a stronger community can be built for those affected by cancer.
