Karen Baas, a Providence Medford Medical Center employee and cancer survivor, joined the Hood to Coast "Cancer Crushers" relay team to raise money for cancer and to share her inspirational story with others.
Karen completed treatment for Hodgkin's lymphoma nine years ago. Six months later she began training for a marathon. "I didn't know what I was doing," she said. But with time and training, she completed the marathon and now has several ultra marathons under her belt. She plans to do a 100-mile run soon.
Your gifts to cancer programs and services in southern Oregon help create hope for patients like Karen.
