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.
Beginning in 2011, the Shoulak Family and Full Circle Studios (a locally-owned recording studio) have hosted an annual outdoor music festival at the Shoulak home in rural Corcoran, Minnesota to raise money for breast cancer awareness, research and education, support, treatment and a cure.
Piper Breast Center is honored to be participating again this year.
Learn more about the details of this fun event and its important mission at the
Shoulak BreastFest Music Festivals website.
