June marked a month-long partnership between Subaru of America and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to spread hope, love and warmth to cancer patients around the country.
In addition to donating blankets, craft kits and notes encouragement to children being treated at Children’s Healthcare in Forsyth County, Michael Barlow arranged for a surprise guest appearance.
Coy Bowles, guitarist for the Zac Brown Band and author, autographed 50 copies of his children’s book, Maggie Giggles, to be delivered to patients at CHOA and signed a gift guitar for Ethan, our guest of honor who is celebrating the joy of being cancer free.
Since 2015, Subaru and its retailers have partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to donate more than 105,000 blankets and 12,465 arts and crafts kits to those fighting cancer at hospitals and cancer treatment centers across the country.
The LLS works to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients. Leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma are types of blood cancers. Since its inception in 1949, LLS has invested more than $1 billion in cutting-edge research to advance cures and better therapies, while LLS support and advocacy programs have helped patients navigate their treatments and access quality, affordable, and coordinated care.
As the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education, and patient services, LLS is working to save lives not someday, but today.
