At the Virginia Piper Cancer Institute, we believe that the care we provide is as unique as the patients and families we serve. The life of every individual we encounter is defined by many experiences.
Cancer is just one of them.
We know that staying close to home when possible is an important and necessary part of the healing journey. Across our wide network, teams of highly specialized caregivers come together to offer timely, coordinated and expert cancer care.
Staff from the Virginia Piper Cancer Institute, Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute and John Nasseff Neuroscience Institute represented Allina Health at the American Brain Tumor Association's recent BT5K event. Proceeds from the event help fund brain tumor research, patient programs and support services offered through the Association.
