Albany Subaru's Share The Love Story

 

Kevin Wong, John Nakamura's best friend of 48 years, was struck with cancer in 2009. Despite his diagnosis, Kevin continued to work as the general manager of a nearby Subaru dealership. Well loved by his customers and staff, he barely missed a day of work. After five years of multiple operations, extensive treatment and slow and painful recoveries, Kevin's cancer unfortunately did not go into remission.


When he knew the end was near, Kevin hoped to accomplish one more thing - show his appreciation for the nurses at the Infusion Center at Stanford Cancer Center ITA. These nurses primarily care for Stage 3 and Stage 4 patients through the roughest part of their treatments. A shining light for these patients, forever present through the darkest days, a constant comfort and giver of encouragement. For these nurses, everyday is hard, but they always answer the bell.


The Wong Family Foundation at Stanford Health Care was formed, where 100% of the funds benefit the nurses to pursue educational opportunities, wellness seminars and team building exercises. In short, a fund to thank these special nurses for their dedication and care.


Albany Subaru has chosen them as our local charity since the beginning of the Hometown Charity program, and have continued to support them with a dollar for dollar match with Subaru of America resulting in a donation of $500 for each new Subaru sold during the annual Share The Love Event. We feel it's a small thank you for these great health care professionals, courtesy of Kevin Wong.


Last year, we were able to raise over $120,000 for these nurses that were with Kevin till the very end. Help us help them this year and enjoy your new Subaru!
