For patients in the middle of care, the little healing touches can provide quiet time to rejuvenate and refocus on life beyond treatment. That’s why we offer natural spaces at several of our specialty centers in the Twin Cities. These beautiful gardens give patients and their families opportunities for physical exercise, reflection and restful relaxation.

You can be part of these restorative places by dedicating a commemorative brick. Bricks can be personalized with messages to honor loved ones or offer hope. 100% of your donation to dedicate a brick will go to patient programs.

Matching gifts offered by many employers can multiply your generosity, making your gift go further. We’re eligible for many matching gift programs sponsored by corporations, foundations and other organizations. Check with your employer to see if they’ll match your gift.
