NORTH CONWAY, NH – This summer Subaru retailers partnered with local Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) chapters nationwide to deliver nearly 40,000 blankets to hospitals and cancer treatment centers across the country. Included were messages of hope and LLS “Here to Help” palm cards with information about services they provide to cancer patients. Memorial Hospital was among the recipients of these donations. The local Subaru dealer’s general manager, Dale Petell of Profile Subaru, personally delivered 80 blankets and cards to Memorial’s Oncology & Infusion Services Department earlier this month.
“Subaru Loves to Care is all about improving the health of our local communities and we are proud to once again work alongside our valued partner, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, to continue supporting patients and their families battling cancer,” said Dale Petell of Profile Subaru in Albany. “We hope that through this program, our gestures of hope will comfort and warm those who need it most.”
“Helping our patients to be comfortable during their treatment and know that we care is crucial to providing the excellent and compassionate care our cancer patients deserve,” said Lawrence Carbonaro, Memorial Hospital Outpatient Specialty Practice Director. “Our patients love the blankets and cards, and appreciate these gestures of kindness in their fight against cancer.”
Memorial Hospital through its Oncology & Infusion Services, provides state-of-the-art chemotherapy, infusion services and integrated and compassionate cancer care, close to home. Staff and volunteers also offer group support and education through Journey of Hope, a well-established, highly popular program for anyone whose life has been touched for cancer.
