Pink Frosting 

Cuyuna Regional Medical Center's annual Pink Frosting: a Sweet Night out will be Tuesday, October 25, 5:00 p.m. at Heartwood Senior Living Community in Crosby. 


The cost of breast cancer treatment quickly becomes a financial burden for many. Even for patients with insurance, the costs add up. There are also many out-of-pocket costs such as transportation that may add to the burden.


At CRMC, we are committed to helping as many cancer patients as possible through those financial struggles with our Courage Cabinet which assists those in treatment and undergoing chemotherapy or radiation.  The Courage Cabinet provides financial support to help meet basic needs, decrease stress levels and allow patients to focus on healing.  Free breast imaging services to eligible women who might not otherwise obtain routine mammography screening are also funded. Ultimately, what the Courage Cabinet delivers is hope.


Beginning at 5 p.m., there will be a silent auction of apparel, accessories, and gifts donated by area businesses and individuals followed by a live auction. Emcees will be Cuyuna Regional Medical Center’s Surgeon Shawn Roberts, M.D., and his wife, Physician Assistant Laura Roberts. A local patient will speak about her journey with breast cancer. Decadent desserts, savory hors d'oeuvres, a wine tasting and door prizes will also be available. Guests are encouraged to wear pink in support of breast cancer awareness.


Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at the secure link below or by contacting Jennifer Holmvig at 218-545-4455.
