How Can I Help?
Without support from individuals, organizations, corporations, and foundations, the WVU Cancer Institute could not continue operating as West Virginia's premier cancer facility with a national reputation of excellence in cancer treatment, prevention, and research.
Avid WVU supporters, Don Hoylman and his late wife Marcella, are giving back with a transformational leadership donation through a trust. The amount of the gift is not being made public at this time at the donor’s request. The substantial gift will be split evenly between the College of Business and Economics and the WVU Cancer Institute.
WVU women’s basketball players and their fans are helping the WVU Cancer Institute in the fight against breast cancer. At the annual Play4Kay game against Oklahoma on Feb. 17 at the WVU Coliseum, the Mountaineers wore their pink to raise breast cancer awareness and offered fans chances to win various prizes during the chuck-a-duck promotion. It was a flurry of activity at the Cancer Institute table where fans purchased the pink ducks and made donations to receive official pink Mountaineer T-shirts, raising $2,300 for the Betty Puskar Breast Care Center.
