In 2011, long-time athletics donor Al Glick surprised Coach Lloyd Carr by naming the Coach Carr Pediatric Cancer Unit at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital in his honor.
“Lloyd has spent so much time at Mott Hospital and is well deserving of this honor, as well as the College Football Hall of Fame induction,” said Al Glick, co-founder of Alro Steel who passed away in 2022. “Our family is proud to honor Lloyd in this way for both his passion for C.S. Mott Hospital and Michigan football.”
In a painful irony, on September 23, 2014, Coach Carr’s grandson, Chad, would be diagnosed with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) in the pediatric cancer unit dedicated to Coach Carr.
