Great Summer Escape Benefits Cancer Center

The Homestead, Fox Motors offer luxury experience July 28 - 29 The Homestead in Glen Arbor is offering a luxury summer resort experience to benefit the Cowell Family Cancer Center fundraising campaign at Munson Medical Center.

The Homestead and Fox Motors are partnering with Munson to offer a package of fun, food, and relaxation July 28 - 29. A $2,500 contribution includes one night’s accommodations, golf, spa, exquisite dining, and many extras for two people. All proceeds will directly benefit the Cowell Family Cancer Center.

The state-of-the-art Cowell Family Cancer Center project will improve the coordination of care and treatment options for cancer patients in northern Michigan, and keep cancer care as close to home as possible.

A public fundraising effort was launched by the hospital last month. Each year, about 1,500 people are newly diagnosed with cancer at Munson Medical Center. In the next 10 years, hospital officials project a minimum of 20,000 new diagnoses of cancer just within the five-county region.

Tentative plans call for construction to start on the comprehensive cancer center in the spring of 2014.

To register for the Great Summer Escape, call The Homestead at (231) 334-5000. More information on the Cowell Family Cancer Center public campaign can be found at munsonhealthcare.org/imaginehealinghere.
