WVBHI provides financial based needs assistance to those suffering from breast cancer and their families. Our program helps survivors like Delvia from Alderson, WV. Delvia was diagnosed in 2016 and was able to attend her first Race on May 5th. Her daughter and granddaughter flew in from Miami to show their support and walk in honor of their Mom and Grandma.
Sadly, the very excited Delvia had a stroke halfway through the course and had to be admitted to the local hospital. WVBHI was able to immediately secure accommodations and provide financial assistance for her family, who were due to fly out that same day. After 4 days in the hospital, Delvia was released to go home to Alderson, and her family was able to fly back to Miami.
