Once again, WVU Medicine Children’s is holding a Mediathon in conjunction with the WVU Day of Giving. As part of this extraordinary day, you have the opportunity to hear inspiring stories, participate in challenges, and help us raise critical funds to help improve the health of West Virginia children and women.
Why we need your support
At WVU Medicine Children’s, we believe that children and expectant mothers should never have to travel far from home to receive the best care. We are committed to building healthier futures for our children and elevating care for all West Virginians, regardless of their ability to pay.
Your support builds a legacy that protects every moment of joy a child deserves. Your legacy is their future and allows us to fill the hospital with everything that can make that future bright – top talent, cutting-edge equipment and technology, innovative research and education, and expanded telemedicine capabilities. You can help us go above and beyond for West Virginia’s families.
How you can help
Contributing to one of our priority funds is one way to support WVU Medicine Children’s.
WVU Children’s Greatest Needs – Fund #2V127
This fund provides support where the need is the greatest at WVU Medicine Children’s.
Cure Kids Cancer – Fund #2W378
The Cure Kids Cancer Fund supports the Blood Disorders and Cancer Center at WVU Medicine Children’s. This Fund supports a variety of psychosocial resources for children and families including a residential summer camp, providing gas cards for travel to and from the hospital for treatment and celebrating monumental milestones.
Child Life Fund – Fund #2V497
Child Life is the heart of our hospital, as these specialists touch every family in our care. Fear of the unknown is often a major challenge for patients and families. Child Life specialists provide age-appropriate information to help children and their families cope and prepare emotionally for invasive procedures and surgery.
