A Legacy of Hope
Jane Brattain and her husband, Don, are long-time supporters of Park Nicollet. In 1991, they donated money to purchase a state-of-the-art biopsy machine that promised a less invasive way to detect breast cancer. Jane never imagined she'd be the first person to use the new technology. When a routine screening mammogram revealed a suspicious lump in her breast, a biopsy was performed using the new machine and cancer was discovered in time for early intervention. More than 20 years later, Jane remains cancer-free and active in Park Nicollet Jane Brattain Breast Center activities and events. Today, our center bears her name and shares her passion for early detection.
