Lake Country Ball supporters raise $100,000 to enhance women's health!

Because of your generosity, more than $100,000 was raised at the sixth annual Lake Country Ball on Saturday, November 3, at the Milwaukee Marriott West hotel in Waukesha!

Your gift will support the purchase of Faxitron equipment, which allows breast surgeons to ensure a patient's entire tumor is removed right in the operating room, instead of waiting up to 30 minutes for a pathologist to verify it.

For patients, this equipment means less time under anesthesia and a quicker surgery. It also brings peace of mind knowing their surgeon can confirm the tumor was removed immediately.

Thank you for supporting this cutting-edge technology that will enhance the patient experience and improve the quality and safety of how breast care is delivered at Aurora Medical Center in Summit.

To learn more, please contact Megan Van Deurzen at 262-434-1062 or
