Thank you for supporting our cancer community. The KRH Cancer Support & Survivorship program provides psychosocial care for people affected by cancer. These services were launched in May 2016 and provide support for the whole family with an array of programs to help improve quality of life from the point of diagnosis, through treatment, into survivorship and end of life if that is what happens.
Proceeds from the events below help support the KRH Cancer Support & Survivorship program. Thank you for giving back to help our friends and neighbors who have been affected by cancer. Visit the KRH Cancer Support & Survivorship program pages
to learn more.
These partner events are supported by, but not exclusively hosted by, Kalispell Regional Healthcare. Nonetheless, they are great ways to be active supporters of our cancer community. Thank you in advance for your involvement to make them a success!
Halt Cancer at X
In memory of The Event at Rebecca Farm’s founder, Rebecca Broussard, her daughter, Sarah Broussard, launched Halt Cancer at X in 2012 – an initiative to raise money for breast cancer research. The name comes from the dressage test, where the first movement is for the rider to halt the horse at X, a station marked in the arena. Donations are infused back into Flathead Valley community outreach programs and national research working toward a cure – expanding ever since through the combined efforts of competitors' pledges, auctions, tax-deductible contributions, parking donations and imaginative fundraising. Halt Cancer at X has given nearly $325,000 to local organizations and national research. A parking donation is collected each day at The Event to help support this campaign.
Save a Sister
The Save a SisterTM
initiative is a collaborative program among Kalispell Regional Healthcare, North Valley Hospital and the Flathead City-County Health Department. Our mission is to lessen the impact of breast cancer in our community. The initiative's goals are to improve women's access to screening mammography, educate the community, and promote breast cancer awareness and prevention through outreach activities. Save a Sister also supports postoperative durable goods that often are not paid for by insurance. All funds stay in the local area. Every October the Save a Sister initiative hosts Be in the Pink, raising community awareness by asking businesses and individuals to decorate in pink and wear pink to celebrate and show support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Montana Dragon Boat Festival
Held annually in September on the beautiful shores of Flathead Lake, the festival hosts two days of competitive and recreational dragon boat racing. Breast cancer survivor teams from across the United States and Canada attend the Montana Dragon Boat Festival each year.
Kalispell Regional Healthcare sponsors a breast cancer survivors' boat ("Got Mamm?"). Interested paddlers should call (406) 471-9157
to join the team.
