Participating in the delivery of the blankets were (l to r): Thomas J.

On August 16, 2016, executives from Subaru of America’s corporate headquarters and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) along with representatives from Subaru of Cherry Hill delivered messages of hope and 150 specially made blankets to MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper to help encourage patients and keep them warm as they continue their fight against cancer.

“This is such a generous and kind gesture from our friends from Subaru of America, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and Subaru of Cherry Hill,” said Cooper President and Chief Executive Officer Adrienne Kirby, PhD, FACHE. “The blankets and the notes of encouragement will mean a lot to our patients – just as it does to us. Thank you so much for thinking of us and for your commitment to helping cancer patients.

The event was part of an initiative by Subaru of America and LLS to provide much needed support and “warmth” to cancer patients and their families in communities across the country. Throughout June, visitors to participating Subaru retailers wrote messages of hope for cancer patients as part of the Subaru Loves to Care initiative. More than 30,000 blankets have been donated to cancer patients nationwide since the program began.
