The American Red Cross’ Blood Saves Lives Fighting Cancer initiative has received a $3,000 grant from the Memorial Health Foundation to support its efforts in providing blood products for cancer patients in need. Sharon Kesselring, executive director of the American Red Cross of the Ohio River Valley, expressed excitement about the partnership with the Health System.

The foundation’s board of trustees voted to award the grant due to the vital role played by the American Red Cross in patient care within the Health System and in the region. The grant will help with collecting and processing blood products for those who require them.

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 the American Red Cross collects blood throughout the entire area, not just within Memorial Health System. This blood is processed and made available for patients fighting cancer when they need it. Blood transfusions can be crucial in cancer treatment, providing relief from symptoms of chemotherapy treatments.
