Cancer Care Fund

Through the generosity of the community and the annual Denim Day fundraiser, the Deer River Area Health Care Foundation is privileged to offer care packages for cancer patients from the Essentia Health Deer River, Grand Rapids and Remer Clinics that are currently receiving treatment.

Care packages include $100 Visa gift card as well as cancer resources. These care packages are available to any local Essentia Health patient diagnosed with cancer and is currently going through treatment and can be inpatient, surgery, clinic, radiology, or other therapies.

Save the Date! Denim Day is October 16, 2019


Each year, participating employers allow their employees to wear jeans to work for a minimum donation of $2, and proceeds are used to support our Cancer Care Fund.
