BOZEMAN DEACONESS FOUNDATIONBozeman Deaconess Foundation was established in 1998 to generate private financial support for improved community health and quality of life. The foundation is a non-profit corporation, governed by an independent board of directors that administers all philanthropic gifts to Bozeman Deaconess Health Services. Due to more than a century of philanthropic giving by a generous community, facilities and services have been expanding since the hospital's inception in 1911. Constant growth in the area's population has resulted in an increased demand for health care services that cannot be met exclusively with the hospital's resources. Bozeman Deaconess Foundation has raised millions of dollars and has responsibly invested permanent endowment funds to serve future medical needs. Through philanthropic partnerships, the foundation will strive to insure that services continue to meet the needs of those living in and visiting this region.
Cancer Survivor Spotlight - Christy Baldner Castronovo
In April 2012 I found a lump in my breast. I’m the kind of person who usually assumes “it’s nothing.” However, after visiting with my husband, Greg, and a friend that is physician assistant, I decided to get a mammogram since I was 39 years old and hadn’t had one. At the time, I was training for a sprint triathlon so I was running, biking and swimming regularly, eating healthy and being a very active Bozemanite. I have always led a healthy and active lifestyle. It was certainly nothing. May 16, 2012 changed my life forever. Read Christy's story here.
