Donor of the Month: Beth Duke

Beth Duke is the owner of Coldwell Banker/The Falls Real Estate located in Great Falls, MT. She was first introduced to the Legacy Foundation by a friend who encouraged her to join the Legacy Foundation Leadership Cabinet. “I am a cancer survivor and know how important it is to have somewhere to stay, that you are safe, and you have assistance if necessary.” Beth shared. “I enjoy being a part of helping our community and outlying communities get the medical attention they deserve. You have to be passionate to believe in something. I believe this Foundation is vital to our communities.”

“I was a cancer patient at the Great Falls Clinic Cancer Center 21 years ago! Thanks to Dr. Guter and his team, I am here and able to support this mission. I believe in paying it forward.” Beth shared. Beth knew something was wrong, and due to her family’s history with cancer, she took it upon herself to get the healthcare she needed. “I have always listened to my body and I knew something wasn’t right. I forced my primary care provider at the time to do a chest X-ray and they found the lymph nodes in my chest were a huge mass. I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma and had Chemo treatments twice a month for six months.”

Beth shared some final thoughts on why she donates. “When going out of town for treatment I believe by knowing the patient and family will have a place to stay will remove stress from an already stressful situation. Any way we can pay it forward to someone who is going through diagnosis and treatment will make their day brighter.”
