    Join us Sept. 14 for the Virtual Pink Party

    The annual Pink Party benefits Bonnie’s Bus, which has provided more than 20,000 mammograms to West Virginia women since 2009, many of whom are uninsured and unable to cover the cost of a mammogram otherwise.  110 women and counting have been diagnosed with breast cancer following a screening on the Bus.  Although the world has changed in 2020, Bonnie's Bus keeps rolling and the need for its services continues to grow. This year, out of an abundance of caution, the decision has been made to host The Pink Party virtually. Fellow supporters and friends of the WVU Cancer Institute can safely support Bonnie's Bus and the women of West Virginia remotely, all while enjoying a fully interactive experience including special presentations, contests, and auction.
