Tough Enough to Wear Pink Central Montana had its check presentation in October, donating $37,000 from the program this year. This year TEWPCM donated to Sletten Cancer Institute, Frontier Cancer Institute, Billings Clinic, Central Montana Medical Center and the Central Montana Cancer Screening Program. All of the money is used for patients in the seven Central Montana counties: Fergus, Judith Basin, Wheatland, Golden Valley, Musselshell, Garfield and Petroleum.

Tough Enough to Wear Pink Central Montana started in 2010, and has donated over $150,000, courtesy of the gracious support of Central Montana’s communities. The program started out just helping breast cancer patients, but thanks to the growth of the program, TEWPCM is able to help anyone battling cancer and receiving treatment at one of the area medical facilities.

The Tough Enough to Wear Pink Central Montana program helps through gas cards, hotel vouchers, food vouchers and providing cancer connection classes here in Lewistown every two months, open to the public.
