Two women who lost their battles with cancer were honored as their family donated $1,500 in their memory to Monongahela Valley Hospital's Charles L. and Rose Sweeney Melenyzer Pavilion and Regional Cancer Center. The funds raised will benefit the Ensure Fund, which provides MVH's cancer patients with nutritional supplements vital to their treatment.

The family held its Second Annual Oldies Dance on May 10 in West Mifflin with the music once enjoyed by the late Kim Davis of Allenport and the late Diane Sesco of N.C.

Caregivers of the late Kim Davis met with her family when they presented Monongahela Valley Hospital's Charles L. and Rose Sweeney Melenyzer Pavilion and Regional Cancer Center with a $1,500 check in Mrs. Davis' memory.

Zahalsky, M.D., director of Medical Oncology; Jessica Fitch, RN, and Bonny Holmes, supervisor.

Diane Sesco was Kelly Sesco's late mother-in-law who died of cancer at age 58. Gabrielle Nolder's parents are Tracy Barr, who also helped with the dance, and Ken Nolder. The family lives in Elizabeth.

"We want to help those suffering like my mom did and we want this event to help raise awareness about a disease that can surface at any time," said Mrs. Sesco.

MVH's Regional Cancer Center, which opened in 1985, is the second largest center in Western Pennsylvania, offering cutting edge medical oncology and radiation oncology treatments; clinical trials; and innovative therapies for symptom management
