Manchin Statement On The Death Of Betty Puskar

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) today released the following statement on the death of Betty Puskar, long time breast cancer research and treatment advocate.

“Gayle and I send our hearts out to Betty’s family for our shared loss of this wonderful, selfless person. Betty was a tireless advocate for breast cancer research and treatment in West Virginia and a truly dedicated friend to so many people, including myself and Gayle. Her work to raise cancer awareness and her efforts to build the first breast cancer treatment center in West Virginia will be remembered for generations to come. I am lucky to have called Betty a dear friend for many years and we are forever thankful for her diligent work across the state. Gayle and I, like all West Virginians, will keep Betty’s family, friends, and loved ones in our prayers.”
