When Lori Hesen was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014, the technology provided by the Hurwitz Breast Cancer Fund was instrumental in diagnosing her cancer early, and she and her husband, Chris, felt very comfortable staying local, having her treatment through the Center for Breast Care at Frederick Health.
Chris Hesen says.

“All of the different doctor visits and journeys and touch points all throughout this journey have been local. Simply being local is a big relief. With such high-level professional talent and equipment, it is hard to beat the care that we got locally. We feel strongly about that and advise other people accordingly whenever we come across folks who have [breast cancer treatment needs].” Lori adds, "I can't imagine going an hour every time I needed to go to the doctor. I didn't have to do that fortunately because we have such great care right here in Frederick County." According to Chris, "[the fund] has brought another level of focus, incredible talent and equipment and local care. It is hard to quantify the value of the fund and the benefits it has brought us."

We are so grateful to Chris and Lori Hesen for their generous gifts of time and resources to make our efforts successful. The Hesens are Finish Line Sponsors and also our Survivor Sponsors this year, underwriting the cost of all survivor t-shirts. Thank you Chris and Lori!
