A total of $42,281 was raised for area cancer patients at Cuyuna Regional Medical Center’s Kaleidoscope—A Celebration of Courage fundraiser for area cancer patients on Oct. 29 at Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge.

The proceeds will benefit the Courage Cabinet which tries to make the journey a little easier for cancer patients by providing financial assistance to help meet basic needs and allow them to focus on healing. The funds are used to provide things like travel assistance, nutrition supplements, medications, compression garments and more to those in the fight of their lives.

The total compares to $41,050 raised last year.
