When patients come first, they live longer, fuller lives. Our five-year survival rate for patients with metastatic cancer is nearly five times greater than the national rate. See the data and learn what the gift of more time means to the people we care for.
Mark your calendar for our sixth annual Blesie Tree Walk! This event brings together families and friends (and occasionally a few pets) to support the Blesie Tree Foundation. Stroll at your own pace and enjoy light refreshments, a silent auction and time with kindred spirits.

The Jesse Tree, from Isaiah 11:1 is a biblical symbol of an “advent tree”. It is the inspiration for our Blesie Tree of perpetual giving.
After losing a family member to cancer, the Blesie family decided to help those who are receiving treatment and have need. By paying it forward with little things, we can show we are not alone and that through helping, giving and receiving we can reach a better place.
We invite you to share with a staff member if there is an opportunity to extend help to a patient or family member in need.
The first annual Blesie Tree Walk was held September 14, 2013, and it’s grown each year with your help. Since the first walk, nearly $11,000 has been spent on paying it forward to local cancer patients.
We invite you to participate and support this great cause! If you would like to contribute to The Blesie Tree directly, please contact us. Your generosity is truly appreciated.
