Doll, President and CEO, Subaru of America; Adrienne Kirby, PhD, FACHE, Executive Chair and CEO, Cooper University Health Care; and Generosa Grana, MD, FACP, Director, MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper, unload a vehicle full of blankets to be delivered to patients.

Executives from Subaru of America’s corporate headquarters and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) delivered messages of hope and 100 specially made blankets to outpatients at MD Anderson 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, and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society,” said Adrienne Kirby, PhD, FACHE, Executive Chair and Chief Executive Officer at Cooper University Health Care. “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 the summer, visitors to participating Subaru retailers wrote messages of hope for cancer patients as part of the Subaru Loves to Care initiative. More than 105,000 blankets have been donated to cancer patients nationwide since the program began.
