Chrissy is from Clendenin. She was diagnosed with breast cancer and was being treated at CAMC in Charleston. Fortunately, she was able to apply for and be approved for a WV Medical Card through West Virginia Breast & Cervical Cancer Screening Program.
Twice a week for 6 months, she and her husband, Ron, made the commute for her chemo treatments. It is over 70 miles per trip from her home to the treatment facility. WVBHI was able to provide Chrissy with gas cards to help with the financial burden of her transportation.
Chemo treatments over and on her way to recovery with a very weak immune system. She lost her main source of heat in November 2019. WVBHI was able to purchase and deliver a secondary source of heat. As of last year, Chrissy is in remission and living life to the fullest.
