Betty Puskar Cancer Care and Support Fund
Friends and family members of Betty Puskar, founder of the Betty Puskar Breast Care Center at West Virginia University, are featured in a new video that serves as a tribute to the Morgantown philanthropist.
Unselfish, an angel and a voice for breast cancer, are just some of the words they use to fondly describe the Betty they know and love.
The video was debuted at the WVU Cancer Institute’s 33rd Annual Spring Gala, which Betty co-chaired. The Cancer Institute honored her as the first recipient of the Betty Puskar Winged Victory Award, which will be given annually to an individual who displays great advocacy for cancer awareness and supports the enhancement of cancer care in West Virginia and families in need during treatment.
In addition to receiving the award, Betty’s friends also honored her by establishing the Betty Puskar Breast Cancer Care and Support Fund at the Cancer Institute. Raising more than $100,000 at the 33rd Annual Spring Gala, the fund will support the enhancement of the WVU Cancer Institute Clinic and the affiliate clinics in the WVU Hospitals System.
