LETTER: Julia’s Wings Foundation blood drive a success
To the Editor:
Seventy-six pints of blood were collected, bringing our grand total to 377 pints of blood donated.
We have reached one of our goals of helping more than 1,000 people in need of a life-saving transfusion.
It is so important to us to continue to carry out Julia’s desire to hold blood and marrow drives once she was better.
Now, it is our mission to carry out her wishes.
Thank you to the Holiday Point Association and all of our volunteers for making this blood drive so successful!
It was so wonderful to see such an incredible response from the Sherman and neighboring communities as there are so many people that are dependent on these donations to give them “hope” for a future. Julia was one of them.
Thank you to all the donors for your continued support of our mission.
Julia’s Wings Foundation is getting ready for our fourth annual Team Julia’s Wings at the Kent Pumpkin Run on Oct. 30.
We are hoping to increase our numbers and have an even larger presence this year.
Each year, more hospitals are finding out about our organization.
When asked how she learned of Julia’s Wings Foundation she replied, “I heard about your great organization at the APOSW conference this year. It is a frequent question amongst our colleagues and medical team of who can support this vulnerable and deserving population.”
All proceeds from Team Julia’s Wings at the Kent Pumpkin Run will go toward assisting families with children battling aplastic anemia and medical research.
Registration information for this year’s run will be coming soon.
Endless thanks for your time, support and generosity.
