Tomorrow, December 18, I will be joining forces with the American Red Cross to host an Iron Heart blood drive at Prince George’s Hospital, which is the hospital that brought me be back to life in 2004.
After receiving 36 blood transfusions, I will be making my first blood donation to celebrate this very special occasion.
“Every minute of every day, someone needs blood. That blood can only come from a volunteer donor, a person like you who makes the choice to donate. There is no substitute for your donation.
When you make a blood donation, you join a very select group. Currently only 3 out of every 100 people in America donate blood.
From its beginning, the American Red Cross has formed a community of service, of generous, strong and decent people bound by beliefs beyond themselves. The American Red Cross blood donor embodies this principle. Please join us in our mission to maintain a safe and stable blood supply by making your appointment to donate blood today.
When: Friday, December 18, 2009, from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. To Pre-register Call 301- 618 – 3053
Where: Prince George’s Hospital Center Auditorium 3001 Hospital Drive, Cheverly, MD 20785
