Cancer Patients Receive Blankets and Hope from Subaru

Last Edited:

CAMDEN COUNTY, N.J. --A major car manufacturing company is helping to bring a little gesture of hope and warmth to local patients who are battling cancer.

Representatives with Subaru of America and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society teamed up to provide support to cancer patients and their families at the MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper University Health Care.

As part of the Subaru Loves to Care initiative, the two groups stopped by the South Jersey cancer center to deliver 100 specially made blankets and messages.

Officials say they hope the kind words and warm blankets will help make their fight a little easier.

"These little tokens of appreciation help these patients understand that we're here for them and we care about what they are going through," said Thomas J. Doll, president and COO of Subaru of America. 

"It's very difficult for them to go through this type of treatment, so any little bit that we can help provide in way of encouragement [and] a blanket, is great."

The campaign is an extension of the Subaru Love Promise, which is intended to help community members come together to make a positive impact - one gesture of hope of at a time.
