Tomah Health Community Foundation Supports Treasured Chests | New

The Tomah Health Community Foundation helps Monroe County women undergoing treatment for breast cancer. Foundation members donated $1,500 to Treasured Chests of Monroe County on March 29.

Treasured Chests President Stefanie Walker said the donation will help make a positive difference in the lives of those affected by breast cancer.

“I want to thank the Tomah Health Foundation for donating $1,500,” Walker said. “It’s awesome.”

Walker said they help patients by donating gas gift cards to help offset transportation costs as well as buying wigs and other necessities during treatments.

“These funds are very important,” said Walker, who survived breast cancer 10 years ago. “I had to drive for my treatments, so the gas cards were great,” she said.

Walker said he helped about 1,500 women in Monroe County last year. She said the group recently held their biggest fundraiser of the year, “Ladies Night Out,” which raised $24,000 to help support their mission.
