  • Cancer Institute receives gift bags for patients

    Amy Broadwater of Waynesburg, Pennsylvania is hoping to brighten the spirits of patients at the WVU Cancer Institute Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center this holiday season. A Stella & Dot independent stylist, Broadwater asked her customers and friends to purchase bags from her company’s business as part of a breast cancer awareness campaign. She ended up with 22 bags, which she stuffed with socks, candy and notebooks using her commission from the bag sales to pay for the items, then donated the bags to the Cancer Center to give to patients. “My hope is that the gift bags will help ease the burden that patients may be experiencing and help them realize that others are thinking about them,” Broadwater said.
