For the past five years, St. Mark’s Living has been raising money for Austin, Minnesota’s annual “Paint the Town Pink” to support research on breast cancer prevention and treatment. This year’s effort had special meaning since St. Mark’s Director of Nursing Teresa Nelson is fighting her own breast cancer battle.

St. Mark’s held this year’s bake sale fundraiser in Teresa’s honor. “I have often thought of St. Mark’s as my second family,” Teresa told KTTC-TV. “When I was diagnosed, they all came through for me and have been tremendous support for me.”
