The specially designed Totes for Hope filled with comfort items were delivered by Miami Dolphins quarterback Skylar Thompson to Alex’s Place at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. Dolphins Cancer Challenge Executive Director Javier Sanchez,
AutoNation South Florida Market President Benny Dominguez and Alex’s Place at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center Dr. Julio Barredo were also in attendance.
