Donation warms bodies, hearts of patients in the Tidelands Health Cancer Care Network
Tidelands Health Cancer Care Network patients got a warm surprise this week.
Jordan Hadwin, general manager of Hadwin-White Subaru in Conway, delivered blankets to the cancer network’s Murrells Inlet location to help keep patients warm during chemotherapy.
Hadwin delivered 50 blankets through the Subaru Loves to Care program, which partners with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to donate blankets and arts-and-crafts kits to patients in hospitals and cancer centers. This is the second year Hadwin-White Subaru of Conway has donated blankets to the Tidelands Health Cancer Care Network, an affiliate of MUSC Health.
“At the end of the day, we have been very blessed in this community. It matters that people feel the love from us,” said Hadwin, whose dealership has been in business since 1986. “We hope it helps give them strength on their way to recovery.”
The blankets will be given to patients receiving care at Tidelands Health Cancer Care Network locations in Murrells Inlet, Myrtle Beach and Georgetown. Chemotherapy patients often use blankets to keep warm during treatments.
Tim Laugh, director of oncology services at Tidelands Health, said support from the community is an important part of the recovery journey for cancer patients.
“Just knowing you are being thought of makes a difference,” Laugh said. “When you get a gift, it just brightens your day.”
Tidelands Health Cancer Care Network is the most comprehensive provider of cancer care in the region.
