In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, Philoptochos members of All Saints Greek Orthodox Church delivered 24 “cancer treatment” baskets in the oncology unit at Weirton Medical Center. Each basket included fleece blankets, slippers, biotene, moisturizers, puzzle books and pens. A $25 gift card to help with gas and/or special foods was also included. A spokesperson for the group noted that “Of all the projects our Philoptochos has done, this has been one of the most rewarding.”
