Colleges for a Cure, a special interest club at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, members recently delivered gift bags to oncology patients at Bradford Regional Medical Center.

Approximately 30 faculty and staff from the group are in the process of becoming hospital volunteers to provide companionship during a patient's treatment.

Colleges For a Cure continually raises funds to purchase items for the bags which include gum, mints, water, flavored water packs, cups (donated by Whirley Industries of Warren), crackers, lip gloss, tissues, puzzle books, and cards made by first and fifth grade students in the Bradford Area School District. Through this program, Colleges For a Cure hopes to provide comfort to patients while they are receiving chemotherapy.
