    On behalf of the Lake Health/University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center, I would like to take a moment to thank you and Subaru of Wickliffe for the wonderful blankets your group donated in conjunction with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to the Center for our patients.

Your support is of great encouragement as we continue to wage the fight against cancer, and we respectfully ask that you keep our Center in mind for any future donations. Please accept my personal thanks and gratitude for your meaningful gifts to our Center. Sincerely, Julie A. Moran, RN, BSN, MBA Executive Director
