FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Fairbanks Breast Cancer Detection Center received a special visit from Frank and Nancy Murkowski today.
Every year, the Waterfall Fundraiser donates as much as 250-thousand dollars to the BCDC to help provide care for women - including mammograms.
Recounting her work, Nancy Murkowski shared with staff, that what started as a Senator's fishing tournament has now turned into a fundraiser that supports women's health across Alaska.
Originally one of the "Founding Mothers" of the detection center, Nancy says she's proud of the work that's being done.
Nancy Murkowski; Former Alaska First Lady>>: "It's with great pride and admiration for the Breast Cancer Detection Center, for the Waterfall Foundation to again present a check for 200-thousand dollars to keep us all alive and well in Fairbanks and through the rest of the state of Alaska because they travel all over the state and I'm so very proud. We're just so pleased we can be a part of this whole situation."
