Henry Ford Health System & LaFontaine - Romy S

Our team at Henry Ford Health System is so inspired by the LaFontaine team and their commitment to transforming healthcare in our community here in Southeast Michigan. At Henry Ford, we know that we can’t take care of the health of our community alone. We rely on trusted partners in health – like the LaFontaine Subaru family as well as the U Can-Cer Vive Foundation team – to do this work. For the past two years, members of the LaFontaine Subaru family have visited our cancer infusion center and spread joy to our cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy by gifting U Can-Cer Vive teddy bear care packages. These bears mean so much to our patients. One patient who received a U Can -Cer Vive bear in 2019, brought it to all her chemo treatments – that bear was her best friend, and gave her hope throughout her healing journey with us. The U Can-Cer Vive Foundation, along with members of the LaFontaine Subaru family, also made a gift in 2018 of almost $500K to support Henry Ford Health System and our pancreatic research efforts, specifically the work of Dr. Gazala Khan’s and Dr. Fred Valeriote’s. Pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest types of cancer, and we’re so inspired by the U Can-Cer Vive Foundation and their commitment to creating a cancer-free world. Henry Ford Health System is so proud of our relationship with LaFontaine Subaru and the U Can-Cer Vive Foundation. LaFontaine Subaru and U Can-Cer Vive team: you make the world a better place! Thank you!

LaFontaine Subaru Loves Our Dogs! - Ann B

The residents and visitors to the Village of Milford are so excited about the new Dog Park installed last fall! Located next to the extremely popular Milford Trail, the dog park has been a dream for locals for years. The LaFontaine Family and LaFontaine Subaru stepped in with a generous donation of a Water Fountain---for dogs and their owners. What a treat! Pets will have their own place to hydrate, while hikers and bikers will also ---for the first time---have a place to fill their water bottles and quench a thirst. This was such a thoughtful gift to the community. LaFontaine Subaru kindly asked the community how it could help, and within days offered to pay the full cost for the equipment and installation of the fountain. It will be installed as soon as the weather breaks. Thank you LaFontaine Subaru and the LaFontaine Family!

LaFontaine Subaru Santa Paws - Lauren A

We at Almost Home have loved our partnership with LaFontaine Subaru in Commerce Township. We have partnered with them over the last 8 years and have done many events with them that have been very successful!! In particular, the last event we did was our annual Santa Paws event and it was our best one yet!!! Almost all of our animals were adopted that day which was about 15 adoptions!! They also collected donations for us and stuffed a Subaru!!! Everyone at LaFontaine Subaru is such a pleasure to work with, especially Audrey Ryskamp which is the person we worked closely with. It's obvious her love and dedication to her job and animal welfare is her main priority! Here is a love story from Farfel: I’m Farfel and I had the best Christmas ever! You see me and my five brothers were found at an abandoned barn. A passerby heard us whimpering from a distance. All there was was us and empty paper dishes. We were starving, cold, and thirsty not to mention frightened. Well next thing we knew, we were at Almost Home. They took us to the doctor and gave us the royal treatment. We got real good food. Then, when we were feeling better we went to this amazing Christmas Place called LaFontaine Subaru. I got lots of attention, treats and I even got to sit in Santa’s lap. Santa was so nice he gave me lots of treats and a toy too. Then a miracle happened! I didn’t think it could get any better than this..... I got adopted by a really super nice family. Thank you LaFontaine Subaru for believing in us and Almost Home too! Love, Farfel.¿¿¿¿¿ Here are a few of my brothers who got adopted too!!!

LaFontaine Subaru delivers comfort to patients - Jamie R

On Monday, July 22nd, the Michigan Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and LaFontaine Subaru had the pleasure of delivering 80 blankets to C.S. Mott Children's Hospital 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 LaFontaine Subaru. This incredible act of generosity was warmly received by the staff who joined LLS & Subaru staff to distribute to patients on the 7th floor who were receiving treatment. Being able to deliver a small gesture of comfort that day and seeing their smiles, perfectly captured why the program exists. LLS is proud to partner with Subaru to spread hope, love and warmth to those fighting cancer, across the country and right here in the Ann Arbor community.
