Walking Miracles has developed a travel assistance program to help pediatric cancer patients and their families from West Virginia to get to and from treatment so we can help remove access barriers to pediatric cancer care in WV. The travel assistance program provides each family  $100 gas gift card and a $100 lodging/food gift card for any West Virginia family that qualifies.  

We have worked with our local and referral children's hospital social workers or nurses by providing them with our new patient packets that have an application needs assessment and customer satisfaction form. We serve any West Virginia family whose child, adolescent or young adult is receiving treatment. The participating children's hospitals are WVU Pediatrics in Morgantown WV, CAMC Pediatrics in Charleston WV and Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Centers Pediatric Division In Huntington WV. We also serve West Virginia families who receive treatment in the following referral hospital or children's hospital that is closer to them. These are our other participating children's hospitals, in Ohio Cincinnati Children's, Nationwide Children's in Columbus and Rainbow Babies in Cleveland. In Kentucky it is University of Kentucky in Lexington and in Pennsylvania it is Children's Hospital Pittsburgh and Children's Hospital Philadelphia and in NY Memorial Sloan Kettering.
