Memorial Health receives grant for cancer initiative, saving lives | News, Sports, Jobs

The American Red Cross Blood Saves Lives Fighting Cancer initiative has received a $3,000 grant from the Memorial Health Foundation. This partnership with the Health System will help to provide relief for patients fighting cancer through blood transfusions. Sharon Kesselring, the executive director of the American Red Cross of the Ohio River Valley, expressed excitement about this collaboration.

The grant was awarded by the foundation’s board of trustees due to the vital role that the American Red Cross plays in patient care within the Health System and region. The funds will assist with collecting and processing blood products for those in need in the area.

Julie Dye and Jill Deming presented the grant on behalf of the foundation at Memorial Health System’s first blood drive of 2024. It is important to note that although this grant is specifically from Memorial Health Foundation, it does not limit collection efforts to just within their system, but throughout entire area where American Red Cross collects blood which is then processed and made available for patients fighting cancer when they need it.

More information about future grants can be found online at mhsystem.org/Foundation and anyone interested can apply during their next cycle which opens on July 1st.
