The healing power of kindness is present in every gift.
It is our privilege to pass it on.
Hello,

Earlier this month, Bronson Health Foundation launched our historic community effort that is building support for cancer patients and their families throughout southwest Michigan. We invite you join us. Also in this issue, you will see our updated Giving Societies that highlights the generous gifts received this past year. Thank you for all of your support.

Join Our Cancer Care Campaign
This campaign is raising the bar for our cancer program at the new Cancer Center in Kalamazoo, bringing cutting-edge technologies and upgrades to Bronson Battle Creek's Cancer Center, empowering children through psychological support at Bronson Children's Hospital, and building a more inclusive future for cancer care. A gift to the campaign will bring a new vision for local care that patients and families deserve. We invite you to join us and elevate Bronson's Cancer Care Campaign.
Bronson NICU Impact Inspires Giving
After being diagnosed with preeclampsia, Brittany Hausmann was transported immediately to Bronson Methodist Hospital where her son, Mason was born nine weeks early.

Following delivery, Brittany received exceptional care from both the nursing staff and physicians of Bronson Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialists. Mason stayed in the NICU at Bronson Children’s Hospital for seven weeks. Today, Mason is a healthy, soon-to-be six-year old who is full of love and energy.

This exceptional care inspired the Hausmann family to give back. Brittany shared "We chose to make a donation through the Bronson Health Foundation to show our appreciation. Our hope is to one day pursue opening a non-profit organization to further support families who come through Bronson’s NICU."
