Memorial Health Foundation Awards $3,000 Grant to American Red Cross for Blood Saves Lives Fighting Cancer Initiative

The American Red Cross collects blood throughout the entire region, providing a vital resource for patients fighting cancer. The Memorial Health Foundation recently awarded a $3,000 grant to support the 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.

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 This funding will aid in collecting and processing blood products for those in need in the area, ensuring that patients have access to lifesaving treatments when they need them most.
