  • Madelia, MN — The staff at Madelia Community Hospital and Clinic recently taped a music video with the message “You are not alone” to help promote Breast Cancer Awareness month. The video has been submitted to Medline’s national Pink Glove Dance competition and is in the running for a $10,000 donation in their name to a breast cancer charity.
    “We not only wanted to dance for breast cancer awareness,” says Melissa Hunt, Madelia Community Hospital & Clinic Radiology Director. “We wanted to celebrate the story of the breast cancer survivor. Our music video tells that story.”
    To tell the story of a breast cancer victim is not just to tell the story of one patient battling a devastating disease. Indeed, it is also to tell the story of the hospital staff that encourages, the family who comforts, the friends who reassure, and the community who supports. No one is left untouched by some aspect of breast cancer.
    As Madelia native and breast cancer survivor, Marnie, embarked on her fight, she was supported all the way from the hospital to Main Street Madelia where community members poured in to keep the dance going. Finally, she embraced fellow survivors who won the battle before her.
    Madelia Community Hospital & Clinic not only reminds victims, “You are not alone,” but goes on to show by action, standing united as a resilient and dedicated network of individuals fighting for their loved ones.
    Together, we can beat this, is a motto that can be heard at the Madelia Community Hospital and Clinic.
    The Madelia Community Hospital & Clinic Pink Glove Dance music video can be found on YouTube. But, your vote is needed to help them win. You can log on daily from October 12th-October 26th to  www.pinkglovedance.com and cast your vote.
