The Cause

100% of funds raised during Paint Estes Pink will go toward purchasing a new MRI machine for Estes Park Health. The current machine is 14 years old, and the technology is nearing end of life. EPH Diagnostic Imaging Dept. gives an average of 5-6 MRIs per day and must spend more and more time and money to keep the machine up and running as it ages.

MRI is often used to diagnose certain types of cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, MRI helps doctors find cancer in the body and look for signs that it has spread. An MRI with contrast dye is the best way to see brain and spinal cord tumors. Using MRI, doctors can sometimes tell if a tumor is or isn’t cancer. MRI can also be used to look for signs that cancer may have metastasized (spread) from where it started to another part of the body.

Please consider a donation to honor Estes Valley Cancer Warriors. Every penny counts.
