Spirit of Courage Fund
Since 2003, our Spirit of Courage events have raised over $2 million. One hundred percent of those dollars have been donated to the Spirit of Courage Cancer Center Charitable Patient Care Fund, providing assistance to uninsured and underinsured patients who need help covering expenses associated with 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 help, these vulnerable members of our community would simply forgo treatment and/or medications.
Save the Date!
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.
