Spirit of Courage - August 4-5, 2023

Annual benefit for the Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital Cancer Center Charitable Patient Care Fund, providing assistance to uninsured and underinsured patients who need help covering expenses associated with the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
Your generosity matters!
Call (712) 396-6040 or visit our online donation page today and make your gift today.

Since 2003, our annual Spirit of Courage events have raised over $2 million. One hundred percent of the proceeds are donated to the Spirit of Courage Cancer Center Charitable Patient Care Fund, which assists uninsured and underinsured patients who need help covering expenses associated with the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. This fund assists patients by paying for medications, treatments and deductibles as well as everyday living expenses such as groceries, rent and gas. Without this type of financial help, many vulnerable members of our community would need to forgo vital treatments and/or medications.

2023 Jennie Edmundson Foundation Spirit of Courage Recipients

Each year, we celebrate and honor four individuals who join us and share their stories of courage during their battles with cancer. This year, we will honor Rita Epperson, Brent Malskeit, Fran Shorey and Marlene Turner.
