The Comfort Fund’s purpose is to provide temporary assistance to oncology patients who are receiving their care at West Virginia University Cancer Institute/Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center. The fund is utilized directly by patients until they can be linked with appropriate community, state or national resources.
The Comfort Fund is available to help patients with various areas of need associated with cancer treatment including medication costs, lodging, transportation, and other supportive and social services. There is no overhead for this fund, and money donated goes directly into the Comfort Fund for direct patient assistance.
