Our Mission To provide a seamless and barrier free environment for childhood cancer patients and their families in West Virginia as they go through their cancer journey from the point of diagnosis through the continuum of care. Walking Miracles.Org will provide patient navigators and a teamwork approach with your medical facility to help you and your family have a better quality of life. The goal for us is to do the tedious work for you by removing any barrier that may stop you from receiving your care in a timely manner. Research has shown that some of the common barriers to care for families that have children who have cancer are financial issues related to bills and travel expenses ( food, lodging, gas), understanding insurance coverage and bills, being informed on the current and long term side effects of treatment, emotional issues caused by the treatment diagnosis and stress involved in figuring out how to manage life with this new stressor and taking care of the child so they can have the best quality of life and outcome after their treatment and beyond. We want to walk with you during treatment and after so you know you're not alone.
