Blanket for Cancer Center Patients
“While we provide the latest treatments and technology at Cone Health Cancer Center, the human touch still has a profound impact,” says Cone Health Chief of Oncology Services T. Christopher “Chris” Windham, MD. “Knowing that someone took the time to write a note of encouragement and adding a blanket is huge. Our cancer patients need to know that there is more than our team pulling for them. There is an entire community here, rooting for their success.”
Cone Health Cancer Center treated nearly 200 people with leukemia or lymphoma in 2015.
Visitors to Subaru dealerships were given the chance to offer personalized messages of hope to patients at Cone Health Cancer Center, which were delivered alongside the blankets.
