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.
