Blood Drive Today in Honor of Local Boy Fighting CancerA Blood Drive in Honor of the 16 Year old Centralia High School sophomore battling with Leukemia will be held today in Centralia between 11am and 6pm at the Demaree United Methodist Church at 736 S. Poplar Street.
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.
