Event Details

Dear OLMC Family,
Since coming to OLMC in the fall of 2014, I hoped to be able to schedule a Blood Drive here.  Giving blood is one of the most precious — priceless — gifts that you can give, as I learned first-hand.

Ms. Jacqueline Edelmann

When my son was two years old, he started to get lots of bruises from the smallest bumps, and they took an unusually long time to heal.  Although we were relieved that he was not diagnosed with something worse, Timothy had ITP:  Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura.  One evening, we found ourselves in the emergency room, and Timothy needed a blood transfusion.  There was no time to find out his blood type, so the hospital used O- blood which is the universally accepted type and which is generally considered the safest for babies and young children.

I can’t imagine what would’ve happened without that transfusion — and ever since then, I donate blood every time I’m able in the hopes that no patient has to go without, or even has to wait for, the blood that he or she needs.  Please join me to share this gift by donating at our Red Cross blood drive on November 1st. Below are details on how to do it!
Go Warriors!
