INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana – Patients at Franciscan Health Cancer Center Indianapolis now have something to warm up with while undergoing treatment and at home, thanks to Dreyer & Reinbold Subaru and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
Representatives from the Greenwood, Indiana-based auto dealer recently visited the center to deliver 80 blankets to be distributed to patients. The Dreyer & Reinbold team also brought 30 art activity kits for the children whose parents are undergoing bone marrow and stem cell transplants.
The donations are part of the "Loves to Care" program, a health-focused initiative of Subaru's national philanthropic platform.
The blankets will be presented to patients undergoing treatment at the Franciscan Health Indiana Blood & Marrow Transplantation (IBMT) unit. The program is one – and the first – of only two facilities in Indiana offering full-service transplant care, including bone marrow and stem cell transplants. The unit specializes in treating leukemia, Hodgkins or non-Hodgkins lymphoma, multiple myeloma and other blood disorders.
John Edwards, MD, an IBMT physician; Michelle Nees, program coordinator; and Theresa Weisenbach, RN, cancer services nursing director, were on hand for the presentation.
