Alton Memorial Health Services Foundation is very thankful for the dozens of businesses, individuals, and families who donated to our first Ribbon of Strength campaign.
Thanks to their generosity, $10,325 was raised to support cancer patients at Alton Memorial Hospital. The donations will be used to help patients who experience financial hardships as a result of their diagnosis or treatment. The donations will pay for the essentials – gas, car repairs, rent, mortgage, utilities – so they can focus on treatment, healing, and recovery.
Banners with messages of encouragement for patients and memorializing those lost to cancer formed a 101-foot ribbon on the turf field at Gordon Moore Park. A drone captured these images to show cancer patients, they are not alone, they have an entire community behind them.
