Comfort Pillows for Cancer Patients
Led by Jennie Mangus Jividen, a group of West Virginia women make and donate "comfort pillows" for chemotherapy patients at the Charleston Area Medical Center Cancer Center in Kanawha City. In March 2016, the "Pillow Loadies" donated their 1,000th pillow to the center. They are looking to expand the "ministry" of their "comfort pillows" by reaching out to other churches and groups who wish to join the effort.

Expansion of Wheeling Hospital's  Shiffler Cancer Center
January 30, 2008 Wheeling Hospital today unveiled the 7,200-square-foot Medical Oncology Division of its Schiffler Cancer Center, featuring the newest technology and special amenities focusing on patient comfort. The Most Rev. Michael J. Bransfield, bishop of the Wheeling-Charleston Diocese, blessed the new cancer center during a brief ceremony. Wheeling Hospital is a Catholic-based facility. "Several days ago, our comprehensive cancer program received the highest ranking possible from the American College of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer. The new addition to our Schiffler Cancer Center further demonstrates our ongoing commitment to preventing and treating cancer," said Ronald L. Violi, Wheeling Hospital chief executive officer. The 16,000-square-foot Schiffler Cancer Center, Radiation Oncology Division, has operated since the late 1970s and is located in the lower level of the hospital's Medical Tower 4. The Medical Oncology Division has relocated to the third floor of the same tower. The Medical Oncology Division of the Schiffler Cancer Center will be an integral of the Schiffler Cancer Center by providing a full range of standard cancer and hematology treatments with the newest drug protocols, chemotherapy regimens and clinical trial opportunities. The Most Rev. Michael J. Bransfield, bishop of the Wheeling-Charleston Diocese, blessed the facility located in the Catholic-based hospital. Drs. Manish Monga and Nabiel AlKhouri will see patients in the new complex. The original Schiffler is home to Drs. Gregory Merrick, Jondavid Pollock and their staff. "Moving the Medical Oncology Division to Tower 4 from our previous location puts us much closer to the Radiation Oncology Division and more convenient for our patients," said Monga. "The warm surroundings and unique features were added with our patients' comfort in mind." "The facility was designed to reflect the core tenet of health care, as stated by the Most Rev. Michael Bransfield, Bishop of the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston, that comprehensive health care has to embody the principle of healing the body, mind and spirit," Monga said. "Our new 7,200-square-foot facility has 17 chemotherapy treatment bays with five private bays. Each bay has individual TV, free wireless internet access and individual DVD players, generously donated by the Auxiliary of Wheeling Hospital." In addition, an Educational Counsel and Spiritual Therapy Room has been created for future programs involving yoga, meditation and spiritual counseling. "The new division confirms Wheeling Hospital's commitment to serve the tri-state population and provide them with a center of excellence so that they do not have to travel far for their services," said AlKhouri. The number of examination rooms has grown to seven, and the expanded procedure room will allow for bone marrow biopsies, intraperitoneal chemotherapy for ovarian cancer, intrahepatic chemotherapy for liver metastatic disease and intrathecal chemotherapy for cancer involving the brain and spinal fluid. Wheeling Hospital is the only area hospital that has a dedicated in-patient oncology unit, and plans for future expansion are already being developed. The hospital has more than 100 employees dedicated specifically in cancer care. The internationally recognized Schiffler Cancer Center has treated patients from 33 states and 12 foreign nations. Schiffler treats most types of cancers. Its team of physicians is known nationally and internationally for its experience, knowledge and contributions to the profession. The members are backed by a talented staff of nurses, therapists and researchers. Together, they provide rapid evaluation and deliver compassionate care in a modern and comfortable setting. Recently, Wheeling Hospital's Comprehensive Cancer Program was deemed "impeccable" by the Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons. A CoC Approvals Program evaluation of Wheeling Hospital's cancer care program resulted in the commission issuing a Three-Year Approval Award with Commendation to the hospital -- the highest ranking possible. The hospital is the only CoC-designated Comprehensive Cancer Program in the Wheeling area. In addition, it is the largest cancer treatment facility within a 50-mile radius. The CoC's Approvals Program sets quality-of-care standards for cancer programs and reviews the programs to ensure they conform to those standards. CoC approval is given only to those facilities that have voluntarily committed to providing the highest level of quality cancer care and that undergo a rigorous evaluation process and performance review. For more information on the Medical Oncology Division of Schiffler Cancer Center, call 304-243-6442.

Dr Pfister Memorial July 21st 2017
Dr Pfister Memorial July 21st 2017 Dr. Alfred Karl Pfister, 80, Professor of Internal Medicine at the WVU Health Sciences Center - Charleston Division, died on July 13, 2017, after a long illness. He was born in Wheeling, West Virginia, to Alfred and Anna Seeger Pfister. He graduated from Washington and Jefferson College, and earned his M.D. from George Washington University. He served his internship at Bowman Gray School of Medicine, completed his internal medicine residency at Charleston Area Medical Center, and a fellowship in infectious diseases at the University of Colorado. From 1966 to 1968, he served as Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Public Health Service on the Navajo Reservation in Arizona. In 1969, he joined the Charleston Internal Medicine Group. He subsequently became an accomplished leader and educator. During his career, he received numerous awards and recognitions including: Fellowship in the American College of Physicians, Outstanding Clinician Teaching Award, Attending Physician of the Year, Special Recognition Award for Unsurpassed Approach to Medicine and Exceptional Capabilities as a Teacher in the Department of Internal Medicine, the Shawn Chillag, M.D. Attending of the Year Award, and the West Virginia University School of Medicine Dean's Award. He contributed to numerous research publications and was consistently named to Best Doctors in America and Who's Who in Medicine and Health Care in the United States. Recently, he was honored with the creation of the Alfred K. Pfister, M.D. Legacy Scholarship for WVU Health Sciences Center medical students. Dr. Pfister was a wonderfully devoted father to his children, and an exceptionally loving husband to his wife, Nancy. He was a legendary and beloved physician in our region. He was well known as a humorist, a humanitarian, a healer, and a mentor to all who knew him. Al touched thousands of lives during his 50- year career. His gentle and genuine compassion endeared him to his patients who were ever loyal to him. He was endlessly upbeat and kind, with a mischievous grin and continuous joking, often politically incorrect, but always in fun and never with malice. As a medical educator, he had an encyclopedic knowledge of internal medicine, and was a catalyst for interesting discussion during teaching conferences. He inspired countless medical students and residents to emulate him, the ultimate role model of what a physician should be. Dr. Pfister is survived by his wife, Nancy Taylor Pfister; his sister, Ann Kurtz of Las Cruces, N.M.; sons, Alfred K. Pfister III of Huntington, Philip G. Pfister of Charleston; daughter, Constance Blanks of Raleigh, N.C.; and grandchildren, Will Blanks, Anna Blanks and Wyatt Pfister. Also surviving are his rescue cats, Slabvenia and Midnight, and dog, Tucker. The family wishes to thank Dr. Pfister's WVU staff and colleagues, all the emergency room and hospital staff who cared for him during his illness, and especially Dr. Molly John, Dr. Steven Jubelirer, Dr. Ahmed Khalid, Dr. Rayan Ihle, Dr. Hesham Mohammed, Dr. Atul Singh, and family friend and colleague, Dr. Brittain McJunkin. A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday, July 21, in the auditorium of the WVU Health Sciences Center, Charleston Division. The family will greet visitors at 12:30 p.m. and also during a reception to be held immediately following the service. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to the Alfred K.

West Virginia University Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Division
On September 17, Hope on Wheels was in Charleston, WV, to visit the West Virginia University School of Medicine Charleston Division and their pediatric oncology and hematology team. David Senft from Hyundai's Southern Region team, along with local dealers, presented the West Virginia University Foundation with a $100,000 Hope Grant. The ceremony took place in the boardroom of the CAMC Women & Children's Hospital to a packed house of 100+ people -- doctors, administrators, parents/families, Mayor Danny Jones, State Senators Dan Foster and Corey Palumbo, and others -- in attendance. A large portion of the grant will be used to help fund the summer 2011 season of Camp Winaca, a camp situated on Salvation Army-run grounds that serves cancer patients from across Southern West Virginia. The funding will include support for campers and some critical physical and supportive improvements to the camp facilities. The remaining funding would provide for patient care improvement via nurse education, new clinic supplies, and research projects. More than 15 kids and their parents were in the audience and then moved outside in front of the HOW vehicle to enjoy an outside arts and crafts ceremony that allowed them to dip their hands in ink and leave their signed handprints on a white foam board. The board will now be hung in front of the outpatient infusion center. One of the high points of the ceremony was the inclusion of 17-year old Perry Jarrell, a high school senior, cancer survivor and Camp Winaca camper who plans to attend West Virginia University next year to study medicine - specifically pediatric oncology. Perry had written an essay about the eight summers he spent as a camper at Camp Winaca and the impact it had on him and other kids. According to Perry, at home you're a kid with cancer but when you come to Camp Winaca, you get to just be a kid.
