Golf Fore A Cure raises more than $12K to fight breast cancer

The Women’s Golf Association at the Parkersburg Country Club is helping the WVU Cancer Institute win the fight against breast cancer. During its Annual Golf Fore A Cure Invitational on June 14 the Association raised more than $12,000 for breast cancer research at the Cancer Institute in Morgantown and to support Camden Clark Foundation’s Pink Mammogram Fund, which provides free screening mammograms, diagnostics and breast biopsies for local underinsured and uninsured residents at the Cancer Institute’s Camden Clark Medical Center. Proceeds from the Invitational came from participant entry fees, hole sponsorships, doorprize tickets and mulligans sold the day of the event.
“A lot of our members have either been treated or are being treated for breast cancer at the WVU Cancer Institute and we like to support local efforts to fight the disease,” said Sue Lilly, who co-chaired Golf Fore A Cure with Judy Crichton.

The Women’s Golf Association at the Parkersburg Country Club hosts the annual Golf Fore A Cure in honor of and in memory of friends and loved ones affected by cancer.

    WVU women’s basketball players visit cancer patients

    Several members of the WVU women’s basketball team made a surprise visit to the WVU Cancer Institute Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center this past week. It was an opportunity for them to talk with patients in the infusion center and present each with a silk rose. “We wanted to show our appreciation of what they are going through, and let them know that they aren’t alone,” said Lucky Rudd, a recent recruit to the Mountaineer team. “I hope our visit will brighten their day, if only temporarily,” said Chania Ray, #12 and a guard for the Mountaineers. Patients said it was very nice of the players to take time out to visit with them. Several patients, like Donald Bower, had their pictures taken with them. “I appreciate the rose, and plan to give it to my wife to enjoy as well,” Bower said.
