Cancer Patients at Marshall Receive Messages of Hope and Warm Blankets

Shingle Springs Subaru and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society support cancer patients during Subaru Loves to Care Month.

For the eighth consecutive year, Shingle Springs Subaru teamed up with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to support cancer patients during Subaru Loves to Care Month in June. This year, Subaru and LLS donated blankets and messages of hope to the Marshall Cancer Center, a UC Davis Health affiliate, on June 5. The blankets will provide warmth, love, and relief to cancer patients.

During Subaru Loves to Care Month, Subaru retailers across the country are partnering with LLS and local hospitals to provide blankets and personal messages. By the end of 2023, Subaru will have supported nearly 300,000 cancer patients across the U.S. since 2016.

“At Shingle Springs Subaru, we are committed to positively impacting the community where we live and work,” says Bryant McCarver, Executive General Manager, Shingle Springs Subaru. “That’s why we, in partnership with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, are stepping up to support cancer patients and their families this month.”

Shingle Springs Subaru customers and employees wrote heartfelt, personal notes to Marshall cancer patients. Along with the blankets and messages, the donation also included personal care kits containing items such as eye masks, ChapStick, and lotion.

“We’re grateful for our longstanding partnership with Shingle Springs Subaru and LLS to help improve the lives of cancer patients and their families,” added Mindy Danovaro, Executive Director, Marshall Foundation for Community Health. “The generous donation of blankets, letters, and care kits provides our patients with support, encouragement, and hope when they need it most.”

Marshall Cancer Center’s nationally accredited cancer program provides convenient access to high-quality care for the community. Through affiliation with the UC Davis Cancer Care Network, Marshall oncologists work directly with UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center oncologists, expanding leading-edge cancer care to El Dorado County.
