  • WVU Cancer Institute donates radiation therapy equipment to aid developing nations

    Friday, June 24, 2022

    The WVU Cancer Institute is helping to advance cancer care in developing nations by donating gently used radiation therapy equipment. The Department of Radiation Oncology is donating patient positioning and immobilization equipment worth about $75,000 to Radiating Hope, a Utah-based nonprofit group that provides radiation equipment, training, and education to benefit cancer patients in developing countries where treatment resources are limited. Radiation Oncology Manager Joanne Horgan said the WVU Cancer Institute upgraded its immobilization system last year, opting for newer technology that is more lightweight and versatile. The old equipment was temporarily placed in storage, but she noted that space is limited at the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center. As the Department sought to make room to bring in new equipment, Horgan reached out to colleagues in the radiation oncology field for ways to repurpose the old equipment. They connected her with Radiating Hope. “We’re all about the patient; we’re all about people,” Horgan said. “If we can’t use this equipment and someone can, we want to make that happen. They always say, ‘One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.’ We want someone to be able to use these. They’re in great shape. We just have better equipment now.”
