SPRINGFIELD — For the second year in a row, Subaru of America and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) will spread love, hope, and warmth to cancer patients and their families in communities across the country.
During Subaru’s Loves to Care month in June, messages of hope for cancer patients were written by visitors of Bertera Subaru in West Springfield. Those who wrote a message of hope at a Subaru retailer also received a bracelet to help spread awareness of LLS and the automaker’s goal to provide hope and care, one gesture at a time.
Those messages, along with blankets, will be delivered to Mercy Medical Center’s Sister Caritas Cancer Center on Wednesday, Aug. 2 at 10 a.m. to help keep patients warm as they continue their fight against cancer, and to help spread awareness of LLS. Blankets will be received by Dr. Philip Glynn, director of Oncology.
Through LLS’s network of 56 chapters and Subaru’s presence in communities across the country, together, they are reaching and supporting patients, families, and caregivers in their time of need. As the largest voluntary health agency specifically focused on finding cures and treatments for blood-cancer patients, LLS supports hundreds of cancer scientists and research projects around the world.
