A thoughtful gift

From staff reports

Eleven year-old Lucas Lynch, a member of the Cub Scout pack 272 of the Low Country, stopped by the Beaufort Memorial Keyserling Cancer Center on Dec. 14 with a gift of blankets for the hospital’s infusion center patients. Collecting blankets since Thanksgiving, Lucas was able to donate 35 new blankets for patients to use during their treatments and take home, too.

When Lynch dropped off his hefty donation, Oncology/Infusion Director Mark Hennigan asked him, “What made you decide to donate to the infusion center?”

Lynch replied, “I knew it was always cold in hospitals and my mom works for the hospital so I thought it would be a good idea.”

Patients and staff at KCC appreciate Lucas’ hard work – and the efforts of Cub Scout Pack 272 to inspire charitable giving by young scouts like him.
