New Partnership Grants $3,000 to American Red Cross for Cancer Patient Care in Ohio River Valley

Recently, the Memorial Health Foundation announced a grant of $3,000 to support 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 the 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.

Blood transfusions are essential in cancer treatment, providing relief from symptoms such as fatigue and anemia. The American Red Cross collects blood throughout the entire region and processes it to make it available for patients fighting cancer when they require it. Julie Dye and Jill Deming presented the grant on behalf of the foundation at Memorial Health System’s first blood drive of 2024.

The next Memorial Health Foundation grant cycle will open on July 1, and more information can be found online at
