The support and genourous donations of caring people like you helps Walking Miracles Family Foundation continue its mission of providing the "Country Roads Travel Assistance Program" to WV families whose children have been diagnosed with cancer. Walking Miracles Family Foundation founder, WV native and two time childhood cancer survivor Brett Wilson believes that "no family should not have a financial strain to get their child to their cancer treatments" and your donations help bring us closer to the day when every family can be helped in WV to have travel paid for.

How do your donations help?

The average WV family drives 1 to 2 hours to take their child to their cancer treatment one way. 1 Gas gift card and 1 Food and Lodging gift card can help relieve the financial worry and stress.
A newly diagnosed child has a treatment protocol of three years and goes on the average of 5 days a week.
How is Walking Miracles making a difference for WV families and their children?

How are donations used?

Walking Miracles wants to remove the number one access issue to childhood cancer care in WV and that is travel.
If families can't get to and from treatment because of travel costs then their children could end up having later stages of cancer which make it harder to treat
NO CHILD SHOULD BE LEFT UNTREATED FOR CANCER CARE BECAUSE OF ACCESS TO TRAVEL FOOD AND LODGING COSTS. Give now to help Walking Miracles to provide travel assistance to families and their children in every community in WV.
We also help remive other treatment barriers and access issues to care and provide support using lay patient navigators who are survivors or caregivers to Walk with the families an survivors through their cancer journey.
