Summer Blood Drive

We are THRILLED to be sponsoring a summer blood drive to honor of Griffin Maks, a little boy who had leukemia and is now in remission.  This incredible Skokie family has endured a lot…. Not only was Griffin a triplet who was born prematurely and spent some time in the NICU and received transfusions, but at only a few years old, he was diagnosed with leukemia.  We are happy to say that Griffin has made an excellent recovery thanks to blood donations supplied by Heartland Blood Centers – 

Did you know that cancer patients receive just as much blood, if not MORE, than those in accidents that need transfusions? And preemies are often in need of multiple transfusions throughout their stay at in the NICU.

So now, we’re partnering with Griffin’s family and HBC to try to give back. Time and details to be announced, but keep a lookout for info soon. Each donation can save 3 people!  It’s amazing, and just because it’s summer doesn’t mean that people don’t still need blood each and every week….
