Blood Drive Today in Honor of Local Boy Fighting Cancer
Seth Lange learned of his condition, known as Acute Lymphoblastic Lymphoma, when he was only 14. He received a bone marrow transplant in July.
It is not uncommon for Leukemia and cancer patients to require blood transfusions as a part of their treatment. In fact, some require daily transfusions.
Blood donated at the Blood Drive can help many patients, including cancer patients, accident victims, and those undergoing surgery.
To make an appointment, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED-CROSS. All blood types are needed. A blood donor card or drivers license along with two forms of identification are required at check-in.
