Cancer is a part of our community’s story.
We'll be sharing these stories of health and healing
all month long in support of Pink Vail.
Our first story comes from a local mother, businesswoman, activist, and cancer survivor:
On March 23rd, 2016 I was diagnosed with Ductal carcinoma in situ. I was quite shocked by the diagnosis since my family had no history of breast cancer. From the start of my treatment, the level of care at Shaw Regional Cancer Center was exceptional.
Shaw Regional Cancer Center is an amazing facility in Edwards CO. I could not imagine going anywhere else during my treatment. From all the doctors and nurses who took care of me, I felt like they looked at me as a person. The staff at Shaw had helped me and my family get thru a very hard time. I will always be thankful we have the best Cancer facility right in our backyard.

Pink Vail on March 24, 2018, is the world’s biggest ski day to conquer cancer. Everyone has been affected by cancer in some way. People run, walk and grow facial hair for cancer. In Vail, we ski!
Pink Vail is a fundraiser that brings nearly 3,000 people, dressed in pink, together on Vail Mountain for an all-day event with live music, deck parties, costume contest and more. Pink Vail proceeds benefit all patients at Shaw Cancer Center through improvements to patient care and by funding our Spirit of Survival program, providing all patients the opportunity to receive free exercise training, nutrition coaching, emotional support, massages, acupuncture, outdoor adventures and much more. These unique services can dramatically impact a patient’s quality of life but are not typically covered by insurance.
