BISMARCK, N.D.- A Masquerade fundraiser tonight is helping cancer patients from across the state breathe easier.

This is the tenth year for the foundation, which provides gas cards and lodging to patients from out of town. It also helps provide physical therapy and nutrition care for all cancer patients in Bismarck.

"If we know that people care, and we sense that there is hope and encouragement coming from others it just widens what we can do and gives us a reason to wake up in the morning, and to keep fighting, and to keep working at being the best we can be," said Susan Schwieters, Foundation Board Member.

Donors are wearing their masks in the moonlight for the fifth year in a row. Last year the fundraiser brought in around $80,000.
