Banner Health & MD Anderson Cancer Centers in NoCo Sponsor Cattle Baron’s Ball cancer fundraiser
In 2020, almost 3,000 people were diagnosed with cancer in Larimer and Weld counties. To address this critical need for specialized care in Northern Colorado, Banner Health operates two world-class cancer centers in partnership with MD Anderson Cancer Center and has joined the fight on a larger level as a presenting sponsor of this year’s Cattle Baron’s Ball fundraising event to support the American Cancer Society (ACS).
When one of Banner’s own flight nurses, Tabatha Lang, needed quality cancer care after concerning checkups every six months and a family history of breast cancer, she went straight to the Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center at Banner North Colorado Medical Center in Greeley and asked for a mastectomy. However, there was a new procedure that they suggested called a DIEP flap reconstruction. Lang underwent complex microsurgical reconstruction with Michael Miller, MD, FACS. Tabatha will share more of her story during the Cattle Baron’s Ball in a video that can be seen here.
