WINFIELD, West Virginia -

After he survived two bouts with childhood cancer, Brett Wilson's grandmother said he was a walking miracle.

That is why he decided to start a group called Walking Miracles to help cancer patients and their families.

The organization helps with many aspects of treatment and recovery.

They also provide cancer screenings.

Wilson said he wants to use his knowledge and experiences to help others.

"I just knew it was difficult for me and I wanted to find a way to be able to give back to other folks," Wilson said.

Walking Miracles' services are available to people of any age.

Wilson said they are also open to helping people dealing with illnesses that are not cancer related.
