AutoNation Hunt Valley Delivers Warmth to Patients  –  Jillian J

On Wednesday, July 24th, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Maryland Chapter and AutoNation Subaru Hunt Valley had the pleasure of delivering 80 blankets and hundreds of tote bags to the Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children’s Center at Johns Hopkins as part of the Subaru Loves To Care program. These comforting gifts were accompanied by personalized messages of hope written by the customers and staff of AutoNation Subaru in Hunt Valley. Representatives from AutoNation Subaru, the Bloomberg Children’s Center at Hopkins, and the Maryland Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society were all present during the blanket delivery. Special guests and LLS Volunteers, Maura Kilner and her daughter, Meaghan Kilner, were present for the delivery. Meaghan is a 2-time survivor of Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and took part in a cutting-edge clinical trial at Hopkins starting in November of 2017. She received high-dose chemotherapy, a stem cell transplant and a bone marrow transplant. During her trial, this high school sophomore rallied a team of her friends and family to participate in the National Capital Area’s Student of the Year Campaign. Meaghan is currently in remission but has frequent follow up visits at Hopkins for side effects related to her treatment, but she says she stays positive by volunteering for LLS.This incredible act of generosity was warmly received by Patrice Brylske, the Director of Child Life Services at Hopkins Children’s Center, who was thrilled to distribute these comforting blankets to pediatric patients at the Bloomberg Center. Many thanks to everyone at Nate Hollis and Jay Danick of AutoNation Subaru Hunt Valley and the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, not only for a memorable day, but for supporting LLS’s mission to cure blood cancers and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

A Powerful Partnership Against Cancer  –  Jillian J

On Thursday, April 25th, AutoNation Subaru Hunt Valley¿presented the Maryland Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) with a check for $29,960. The presentation took place at AutoNation Subaru Hunt Valley’s newly renovated showroom in Cockeysville. During the presentation, representatives from LLS and AutoNation honored employees who have been touched by cancer (both organizations have multiple survivors on staff), and recognized a very special local high school senior and non-Hodgkin lymphoma patient Maurice Smith from Randallstown. Maurice Smith is a two-time cancer survivor and was the Baltimore Light The Night Honored Hero in 2018. Maurice loves to play basketball and fish, so AutoNation surprised him with a Yeti Hopper Flip 18 to take on all of his future deep sea fishing and basketball adventures! AutoNation has donated over $18,000,000 to cancer research and provides FREE cancer insurance to all employees starting on day one of their employment. As part of AutoNation Subaru’s commitment to the¿community¿through their Share the Love¿program, LLS is able to bring hope and support to patients across the state of¿Maryland. Thank you, AutoNation Subaru Hunt Valley for your partnership with LLS and Baltimore's Light The Night¿campaign – you are bringing light to the darkness of¿cancer!
