January 17, 2019
The packaged scarves include messages of encouragement from people who have survived cancer.

CHARLESTON — LabCorp employees pitched in to fold, pack and ship 200 scarves for West Virginia cancer patients as it teamed up with Hope Scarves for a benefit Tuesday morning at the company’s Charleston location. The scarves will be delivered to patients at Cabell Huntington Hospital’s Joan C. Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center in February.

This is the third venture between the two groups, and the first in West Virginia.

Hope Scarves is a nonprofit that collects scarves and stories from people who have gone through cancer and passes them on to those who are currently going through treatment. More than 10,000 Hope Scarves have been distributed since 2012 to patients facing more than 90 types of cancer in all 50 states and 23 countries.

LabCorp is a global life sciences company providing diagnostic, drug development and technology for more than 115 million patient encounters annually.
