So you broke your leg. In three places, no less. Playing soccer. And the season has only just begun. We know what you’re thinking. This is the end. My last season ever. I’ll never play again.

Well, think again.

The Miller-Dwan Foundation doesn’t support surgical services just so you can give up on your favorite sport. We don’t pay thousands of dollars for the very best surgical equipment so that people can live a life that is less than they planned. No. Nope, we are not into mediocrity. We are in to living. We support surgical services so you, your friends, your family members, loved ones, and our entire community can enjoy their lives in exactly the way they want. We’re an independent bunch up here in the Northland. So we understand that whether it’s out walking our dog (or ski-jouring!), climbing to the top of Ely’s Peak, or sailing fast through the harbor, you want to do what you want to do.

The Miller-Dwan Foundation has a long history of supporting surgical care. From the time the hospital was Miller-Dwan Medical Center right through to today, surgery has been one of focus areas. We’ve helped create new surgical suites. We’ve purchased that stretcher, that giant stainless steel light, those heated blankets. And we’ve upgraded technology – a never-ending expense. And we continue to do that with your help. If you or a family member have been a recipient of surgical care at Miller-Dwan, consider a gift in honor of your surgeon, in celebration of your favorite nurse, or in recognition of the anesthesiologist who gave you a sweet ride through the surgical process without an ounce of pain. You went in broken and you came out fixed!

Chances are you won’t recognize your surgical team on the street. (Without their hats and masks, none of us do.) But they’ll notice you – yeah you, wearing your soccer uniform. They’ll quietly go about their business, smiling inside knowing they helped get back to things you love.
