Memorial Health receives grant for cancer initiative, enhancing their ability to save lives | News, Sports, Jobs

Memorial Health Foundation has recently granted $3,000 to the American Red Cross’ Blood Saves Lives Fighting Cancer initiative. Sharon Kesselring, executive director of the American Red Cross of the Ohio River Valley, expressed excitement for the partnership with the Health System. The grant was awarded by Memorial Health Foundation’s board of trustees due to the important role the American Red Cross plays in patient care within the Health System and the region.

The American Red Cross collects blood throughout the entire region, not just within Memorial Health System. This blood is processed and made available for patients fighting cancer when they require it. Blood transfusions are essential in cancer treatment as they provide relief from symptoms of chemotherapy treatments. Julie Dye and Jill Deming presented the grant on behalf of Memorial Health Foundation at Memorial Health System’s first blood drive of 2024.

Memorial Health Foundation will continue to support initiatives that improve patient care and outcomes in our community. The next grant cycle will open on July 1, and more information can be found online at
