KB's Chemo Care Kits makes donation of 120 chemo bags for patients

On April 18, the WVU Cancer Institute received a generous donation of 120 chemo care kits dropped off by Robert Colabianchi and Keeley Humberson, founders of KBs Chemo Care Kits.

This non-profit organization located in Pittsburgh has assembled and donated more than 1,500 kits since its inception in March 2017. The organization collects monetary and material donations all year round and with the help of family and friends, assembles the kits twice a year, once in the spring and then again in the fall. The non-profit continues to grow, and its donation locations have expanded, recently to including the WVU Cancer Institute on the drop-off list.

Both Colabianchi and Humberson have had loved ones affected by a cancer diagnosis and created the non-profit as a way to let current patients know they are not alone in their fight. Colabianchi states, “We always say, cancer is just a diagnosis, not what defines a person’s life.”

If you feel inspired by this generosity and would like to make a gift to the WVU Cancer Institute to support patients, please contact Tiffany Samuels in our development and philanthropy office at 304-293-8604 or tiffany.samuels@hsc.wvu.edu.
