Monongahela Valley Hospital (MVH) participated in the recent Mon Valley Relay For Life, held at Charleroi School District Stadium, on May 6. Relay For Life is a worldwide event sponsored by the American Cancer Society that raises funds and awareness to save lives from cancer. MVH distributed anti-smoking information and educated attendees about the correlation between smoking and lung cancer. Members of In-patient Oncology, Medical Oncology and Radiation Oncology discussed diagnosis and treatment of various cancers with visitors to the booth. Team members also connected with former and current patients and caregivers that attended the event. MVH raised $723 and the event's current total is $118,563. Donations can still be made at RelayForLife.org.
