HANNIBAL | The Hannibal Regional Hospital received a grant from The United Way of the Mark Twain Area on Tuesday as part of its Life Light Hope program.
On Tuesday, The United Way of the Mark Twain Area executive director Denise Damron presented a check to the Hannibal Regional Hospital. Hannibal Regional Healthcare System CEO and President Todd Ahrens and Hannibal Regional Foundation CEO and President Wendy Harrington represented the hospital in the check presentation.
As the coronavirus pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for communities, The United Way has created a COVID-19 response fund to help local programs that have been negatively impacted. Many special events hosted by local organizations to benefit local cancer patients have been canceled due to the pandemic.
The funds Hannibal Regional Hospital receives through The United Way's Life Light Hope fund will be used to help local cancer patients access the vital care and resources that they need.
