Patrick Mackey, Market Development Manager at Crown Imports, said that his tour of the N.C. Cancer Hospital to see where contributions will be used opened his eyes — particularly when he saw the kids and families in pediatric oncology.
“Looking at children who are fighting for their lives and their parents, helped me understand more why the resources provided through UNC’s Comprehensive Cancer Support Program are so crucial. It is a great feeling to be able to provide funds to help all patients and their families come to UNC and receive the highest quality of care.”
Long Beverage president Rodney Long, lost his wife, Mary Anne, to cancer. He and his family named the Mary Anne Long Brighter Image Boutique at the N.C. Cancer Hospital. Of his efforts to bring Corona Cares to North Carolina, he said, “We have a personal experience at UNC Lineberger. The amount of care and expertise UNC provides is amazing. I just believe that what we take away from our experience should be something that we try and give back to.”
