Commemorative Gifts/Memorials

Whether it’s to celebrate the joy and promise of a newborn entering the world, to recognize a life well lived, or to honor a brave struggle against an illness, making a commemorative gift to the Foundation can forever preserve the memory of a person’s life. Commemorative gifts to the LRMC Foundation offer a lasting tribute while providing needed support to the medical center and cancer center.

“In Memory of/In Honor Of” gifts can be made at any time by sending in a gift to the Foundation and including dedication and notification information with your gift.
