Blood Drive!

Skyler was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in August of 2010.  Skyler has had many complications during his treatment leading to 184 blood and platelet transfusions.  He would not be here today if it wasnt for those donors who took the time to donate.  We are celebrating Skyler's birthday this year by holding a blood drive.  What better way to celebrate his life than by helping others get to celebrate another birthday as well?  Be The Match will also be there to sign people up for the bone marrow registry.  It's just a quick swab of the cheek!  So for those that want to help but aren't good with needles this is a great opportunity to help.  Both of these things will literally help save someone's life.  The blood drive will be held on May 5th from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm at 875 West Foxboro Drive in North Salt Lake.  To schedule an appointment please email or text Crystal at crystaln_isaacson@yahoo.com or 801-628-6768.  Walk-ins are welcome but if you make an appointment it will make the proccess go by faster, also it will help give us a good idea of how many people are coming so we can have enough staff.  You dont need an appointment for the bone marrow registry.  We will also have a bounce house for the kids while the parents are donating!
