TRUCK WINNER: Gov. Justice delivers custom-outfitted truck to CAMC surgical team member through “Do it for Babydog” Vaccination Sweepstakes


Ellen Taylor wins brand-new truck in 6th round of prize giveaways
CHARLESTON, WV – A surgical team member at CAMC Memorial Hospital in Charleston was given the surprise of a lifetime today, when Gov. Jim Justice presented her with the keys to a brand-new, custom-outfitted truck as part of the “Do it for Babydog: Save a life, Change your life” Vaccination Sweepstakes.
Ellen Taylor was personally greeted by the Governor and Babydog, who shared the exciting news that she was among the lucky West Virginians whose names had been drawn as one of the big winners in the 6th prize drawing of the sweepstakes.

Taylor works at CAMC Memorial as a perfusionist; an individual responsible for operating extracorporeal circulation equipment, such as the heart-lung machine, during an open-heart surgery or any other medical procedure in which it is necessary to artificially support or temporarily replace a patient's circulatory or respiratory function.
Earlier in the day, Gov. Justice also surprised a man from the community of Hacker Valley in Webster County, presenting him with a custom-outfitted truck as well.

In addition to the truck giveaways, 47 more West Virginians were announced as Week 6 “Do it for Babydog” winners earlier today for prizes including two full four-year scholarships to any public institution in the state, five lifetime hunting licenses, five lifetime fishing licenses, five custom hunting rifles, five custom hunting shotguns, and 25 weekend getaways to West Virginia State Parks.
