Sounds of the Season

On Sunday, December 2, 2018, over 800 people attended the 23rd Annual SoutheastHEALTH Foundation’s Sounds of the Season Holiday Concert held at Cape First Church. Attendees were entertained by the region’s most talented musical and vocal artists including the Jerry Ford Orchestra, Brothers Walker, Dr. Andrew Moore and many others. The annual event raised over $28,000 for the Southeast Cancer Care Fund which helps local cancer patients in need.

Run for Ragan

Thank you for supporting the 2018 Run for Ragan. Here are some of the photos taken at this year’s event. Run for Ragan, first held in 2012, as a biathlon (a 5K run and 17 mile bicycle ride), honors the late Ragan Ward Neilson, a Cape Girardeau native and the daughter of Dr. Robert and Barb Ward. Ragan died of breast cancer in October 2007 at the age of 32. All proceeds benefit the Cancer Care Fund which provides much needed services to those cancer patients at Southeast Cancer Center who are unable to afford them.
