New charity program will help Preston cancer patients

KINGWOOD – A new program to help Preston County cancer patients is now available, called Friends Thru Cancer.

Heidi LaRue, a nurse practitioner at WVU, said there are no income or age guidelines.

She said the goal of the program is to provide assistance with gas cards, nutritional supplements, co-pays and durable medical equipment. LaRue said the person seeking help can go to the hospital or doctor of their choice, even if it is out of state.

Donations to Friends Thru Cancer can be made at WesBanco or at Friends Thru Cancer, P.O. Box 58, Kingwood, WV 26537. For information about the program call 304-329-1968.
