Mark and Cindy Cheben have owned and managed The Gateway Florist in Annapolis for the past seven years, pouring time and energy into their thriving flower shop. But each Tuesday afternoon, you’ll find Mark at AAMC. He’s there to donate bouquets of flowers to well-deserving patients.
“We were just looking for a simple way to give back to the community,” says Mark. “We’ve been very blessed and want to care for other people.”
Thanks to the generosity of Mark and Cindy, for the past seven months AAMC Patient Advocacy has delivered bouquets of flowers to patients in need each week. Recipients include a mom on bed rest waiting to deliver her baby, a man spending his 91st birthday in the Emergency Room, a fiancée whose soon-to-be wife passed away during his hospital stay and many more.
While Mark and Cindy can’t solve patients’ health issues, they can brighten their day and make them feel cared for and loved. We appreciate their support.
