Staff Report

Bayhealth oncology patients are receiving blankets through a statewide program with Winner Subaru in Dover and the Delaware Chapter of Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Ten blankets were recently donated to Bayhealth along with handwritten cards featuring words of hope and encouragement; a total of 60 will be donated.

Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Campaign Manager Natalie Di Sabatino said the donation is part of a new program between Winner Subaru and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The two organizations are partnering on Subaru’s Loves to Care Initiative. For each car bought, blankets will be donated to Bayhealth. The goal of the program is to provide warmth and support to patients.

“The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society places a huge focus not only on funding blood cancer research, but providing assistance and support to patients and families dealing with these cancers,” said Julia Schranck, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society office manager and campaign assistant. “Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Subaru hope these blankets and care cards provide comfort and encouragement to blood cancer patients in our Delaware Community.”

“Bayhealth considers this a double win,” said John Shevock, FACHE, FACMPE, senior director of operations, oncology service line and executive director of the Bayhealth Cancer Institute. “First, we’re able to partner with an organization as wonderful as the Delaware Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to increase awareness about blood cancers. And second, we have the opportunity to partner with a local business that is as strongly committed to helping and caring for cancer patients as we are.”

At Bayhealth, patients have access to everything they need when battling cancer. From screenings to advanced technological and medical treatments, Bayhealth is driven to provide the all the care and access to cancer services locally.
