UF Health Shands employee donates blankets to cancer patients in memory of mother 

A group of family, friends and donors recently gathered at the UF Health Davis Cancer Pavilion with UF Health Shands employee Donielle Southwell (third seated from left) to honor her mother, who lost her battle with breast cancer.

Southwell and her team funded a donation of blankets for newly diagnosed patients that are custom embroidered in tribute. Seated to her right is UF Health Board oncologist Bruce Stechmiller, M.D. Also pictured is UF Health patient Juettie Kelley, who received one of the blankets.
