A tangible reminder that someone is thinking about them and cares – that's what some patients at Winthrop now have thanks to the generosity of two local Subaru dealers and the Long Island Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
Through the "Subaru Loves to Care Initiative," both Hassett Subaru in Wantagh and North Coast Subaru in Glen Cove, along with the LLS, visited Winthrop to spread love and warmth through small gestures of hope. Their generous donations of special blankets were accompanied by messages of hope, some written by Subaru customers and others by local children. The 120 blankets Winthrop received as a result of both donations will benefit patients at the Hospital’s outpatient Hematology/Oncology Practice, in the Adult Infusion Center, as well as in the Hospital.
"The unforgettable generosity displayed by these local Subaru dealers, as well as the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), has truly helped to warm our patients’ hearts and brighten their days," said Eva Chalas, MD, Chief of Gynecological Oncology and Director of Clinical Cancer Services at Winthrop.
