Over the years.

at Gundersen Health System who's sole purpose is breast
and patient care.
The money raised has also set up a 40-thousand dollar
which helps make mammograms more affordable.
Along with that.
walkers have funded new equipment.
and allowed Gundersen Health System the ability to
collaborate with national *and* international organizations
on breast cancer research.
It's an event that's really helped put our community
ahead in the fight against breast cancer.
Both all the way from the bedside to the scientific
bench, we now have a full nine yards of great breast
cancer work going on here.
Alot of what we do here has national implications
but it drives how we see patients here and the best
course of action for individual paitent care and it's
making a difference.
