D I S T I N C T L Y M O N T A N A M A G A Z I N E • F A L L 2 0 2 2 132 Cancer is an unexpected path. Since 2005, Benefis Sletten Cancer Institute has been blazing the trail for advanced cancer care. And now with your support, we will forge new paths to prevention, early detection, and survivorship. We are focused on our patients' needs because every cancer survivor is on their own path. Join us in letting them know they don't walk alone. Arika Hagel Unexpected path: Losing sister-in-law Amanda to stage 4 breast cancer in 2020. Amanda was just 38 years old. "We had not thought about genetic counseling before Amanda was diagnosed because we had not been so personally touched by cancer. We have a 13-year-old and a 7-year-old. Just having that worry taken away for my boys is important. It gives so much more hope that it will be just a chapter in our lives instead of the ending." We are expanding our focus on genetic counseling because family is what keeps us going, and prevention and early detection are the best paths forward. Benefis.org/Foundation
