MMH foundation receives donation

The Margaret Mary Health Foundation recently was the recipient of a generous gift from the American Legion Riders Osgood chapter. The $1,500 gift will benefit the foundation’s Cancer Care Fund by providing money to assist with transportation to and from treatment for the facility’s breast cancer patients, said Kasi Christin, MMH communications specialist.

Vicki Elliff, MMH Outpatient and Cancer Center director, is extremely appreciative of the donation, saying, “Transportation can mean the difference between life and death for our patients. Without transportation, our patients may not get to the treatments they need on time, or even at all in some cases. What the American Legion Riders are doing is amazing for our patients.”

The group raised the money through a variety of fundraisers, including collecting money at the stoplight in Osgood and selling T-shirts designed by ALR director Robert Rolf.

“We appreciate everything Robert and all of the members and supporters of the American Legion Riders have done to raise money to aid with the transportation of breast cancer patients. Many patients will benefit from the hard work of this wonderful organization,” says Mary Dickey, MMHF executive director.

The many chapters of the American Legion Riders have independently raised thousands of dollars for local children’s hospitals, schools, veterans’ homes, severely wounded servicemembers and American Legion scholarship programs. Since 2006, riders have united nationally for the American Legion Legacy Run, which raises hundreds of thousands of dollars each year for the American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund, established for the children of those who have given their lives on active duty defending U.S. freedoms around the world.

Persons who want more information about the American Legion Riders Osgood chapter or to order a T-shirt can call Rolf at 812-614-9347.

The MMHF was established in 2012 to raise money to enhance hospital programs, services, technology and educational opportunities and to engage the community as partners in health improvement. Its role is to receive, manage and disburse funds to meet current hospital needs as well as ensure long-term growth and viability.
