WVU Breast Care Center’s new suite named in memory of Robin Troy

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The new ultrasound suite at the West Virginia University Betty PuskaBPBCC-painting.jpgr Breast Care Center will be named in memory of Robin Troy of Morgantown during a ceremony at 11 a.m. tomorrow (June 10) at the WVU Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center.

Troy was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 52 and lost her battle against the disease in February 2011. A canvas painting of her and her daughters, Kristy Jecklin and Melissa Hefner, will be presented to the Breast Care Center on behalf of Greer Industries, where Troy’s husband Jim has worked for 35 years.

The Robin Troy Suite houses a cutting-edge automated breast ultrasound imaging system capable of detecting hidden breast cancers in women with dense breasts.  

Morgantown business owner Liz Raese made a significant donation for the renovation of the new suite.

Tours of the Breast Care Center will be offered to guests attending the ceremony.
