Mammoth Hospital embracing ‘No Shave November’

Press release

Mammoth Hospital this month is proud to be participating in “No Shave November.”  The month-long journey encourages participants to forgo shaving and grooming in order to raise cancer awareness.


“For No Shave November we are honoring the memory of Dr. Tomi Bortolazzo, a longtime resident of Mono County and Mammoth Lakes, California,” said Dr. Craig Burrows, Chief Medical Officer at Mammoth Hospital.  “In her career in Urology, Dr. Bortolazzo dedicated herself to the diagnosis and management of all Urologic conditions, including bladder cancer, and prostate cancer.  She always went above and beyond what was required to make certain that her patients received everything they needed.  It only seems fitting that we do what we can to continue her fight.”

The goal of No Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free.  Please join us in this endeavor.  Don’t shave all of November and please donate to Mammoth Hospital’s Cancer Outreach fund.

Mammoth Hospital’s Cancer Outreach Program provides support, resources and financial assistance to cancer patients living and working in Mono County.  Thanks to donations, we can help offset travel expenses for those receiving their cancer care out of the area.

      Trouble, men can be nurses too. Just like a woman can be a sheriff. 😉
