Over 57,000 cancer cases have been diagnosed in Michigan, 4.5% of those in Northern Michigan. Virtually every one of us has a friend or family member who has dealt with this disease, and many in our community have personally experienced the rigors of treatment. Get involved and you’ll be supporting the 1,500 local area patients diagnosed with cancer annually.
All money raised will go directly to the new Cowell Family Cancer Center' Patient Relief Fund. Located on Munson Medical Center's campus, the Cowell Family Cancer Center shortens the time between cancer diagnosis and implementing treatment. Specialty and multidisciplinary clinics for breast, prostate, and lung cancers will occur in the cancer center, as well as expanded research and clinical trials, and cancer genetics clinics.Cash and check donations will be accepted at the event, please make checks payable to Cowell Family Cancer Center.
