Last week, OVMC received a $500 donation from the Bridgeport Order of the Eastern Star #452 to help support youth from the Ohio Valley at Camp Catch Your Breath, a statewide asthma camp for children ages 8 through 13. Pictured are Lynn Swider, director of cardiopulmonary services at OVMC and EORH and Melanie Collinvitti, pulmonary diagnostics lab therapist at OVMC and education coordinator for CCYB. “We are so thankful for this donation and the opportunity the Bridgeport Order of the Eastern Star has given us to support local youth,” said Collinvitti. “Camp Catch Your Breath is such a great opportunity for children in West Virginia, and we’re thankful to have support in the Ohio Valley community to continue sending students to camp each year.”
