Walking Miracles Family Foundation™

Who We Are

Walking Miracles Family Foundation was founded by a two-time childhood cancer survivor of leukemia and Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. We help caregivers, families and survivors impacted by childhood, adolescent and young adult cancer in West Virginia by navigating and connecting them to support networks and resources. Walking Miracles helps defray the cost of travel associated with treatment through our partnerships, programs and affiliations. Patients, their families and caregivers are never charged for the travel assistance, patient navigation, counseling, or survivorship guidance Walking Miracles provides. 

Our Impact

We have helped over 300 families throughout the state of WV and have provided travel assistance to families in 47 of 55 West Virginia counties with our travel card that helps pay for gas, food and lodging. To date, we have given families over $250,000 in travel assistance.

Families and survivors can apply twice a year for a $250 travel assistance card until they reach the total  of $500. They can apply every year while in treatment and also during survivorship for follow up appointments. Contact us today!


Make a Donation

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 believes that no family should 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.

What We Provide

An aspect of our mission is our belief that the cancer experience can be improved dramatically.

Any cancer diagnosis can leave one feeling frightened, confused, angry, depressed, or lonely. In addition, radiation and chemotherapy treatments may result in some memory loss, slow thinking and other cognitive issues.  We partner with local counselors (...)



Survivorship begins with diagnosis and extends through the entire continuum of care. Our simple, fundamental goal with survivorship is to improve the life experience of child, adolescent, and young adult cancer patients. We’ve built partnerships with numerous (...)
