Fund Type: Donor Advised
Regional Foundation: Franklin County Foundation
The Troy Todd fund was started as a tribute to his love of life and of all people. Troy loved life and wanted others to experience the generosity, kindness and grace our family received from so many at the Rosenbaum House at West Virginia University Hospital. In the summer of 2012 Troy was diagnosed with Acute Leukemia and passed away just nine short months later. Living in Western Maryland we had to travel 60 miles one way for his treatment. We were blessed to come across the Rosenbaum House, that offered us a room for a nominal weekly fee, so I could stay close to my husband during this difficult and devastating time of our lives. We often spoke of how angels seemed to take care of us and have a room when we needed it and we want to extend that gift to as many as possible. Donated funds will allow families to stay together during cancer treatment and hospital stays.
In 2018, the Troy Todd Foundation donated $10,000 to the Rosenbaum Family House at WVU Medicine’s Morgantown campus. This donation was used to sponsor nights of stay at the house for guests who cannot afford the costs and to help provide meals and other support services to guests.
