The family of a Monongahela Valley Hospital employee of 25 years who died in January donated $700 to the Charles L. and Rose Sweeney Melenyzer Pavilion and Regional Cancer Center recently in her memory.

Lori A. Barkey died at age 58 after a battle with breast cancer. Her husband, Steve (center), of Monongahela, and son Shawn Trump (right), of Pittsburgh, presented the check to Director of Fund Development Melissa Marion.

"We grew up here so I had a lot of nurses calling all the time and checking on her," said Mr. Trump, who held a Car Wash for the Cure at his business, Immaculate Detail. He said the fundraiser was "very much a team effort" with his wife, Tinesha and his mother-in-law Bev Richardson, of Bridgeville, plus many friends and fellow business people in the area.

"When someone needs help in the community, you help and it builds a fellowship and they were all there with us for this. It's good to give back," said Mr. Trump, who added that more than 100 people attended the car wash.

The late Ms. Barkey's co-workers also donated funds to purchase two framed prints that will be hung outside the hospital's Cafeteria and Laundry area in her memory.

Her husband was brought to tears at the presentation. He said that he had had a stroke after surgery and he believed that "she held on as long as she did to make sure I was alright. That's how she was."
