Who We Are

The Walking Miracles Family Foundation exists to connect caregivers, families and survivors impacted by childhood, adolescent and young adult cancer to resources and referral networks and to help defray the cost of travel during the cancer journey -- the primary barrier to care in West Virginia.

Thus, the first program we implemented was the Country Roads Travel Assistance Program.  We have helped more than 200 families and have provided travel assistance to families in 33 of 55 West Virginia counties with our travel card that helps pay for gas, food and lodging. To date, we have given families over $35,000 in travel assistance.
