Katie Kempke, a certified medical assistant in Elmhurst Clinic’s pediatrics practice, recently donated 100 chemo bags to Elmhurst Hospital’s Nancy W. Knowles Cancer Center. The bags include items to help patients during cancer therapy.

“We wanted to do something to directly give back to the community,” says Kempke, who, with support from family and friends, made the donation through the Elmhurst Memorial Hospital Foundation. “I have worked at Elmhurst Clinic for 10 years and my family and I have been patients at Elmhurst Hospital forever.”

The EMH Foundation offers many giving opportunities and special events designed to support the hospital’s programs and facilities.
