Name: MIBlood Blood Drive and Be The Match Bone Marrow Screening - In Honor of Lily Goodwin
Date: March 2, 2017
Time: 1:00 PM - 6:00 PM EST
Heartland Health Care Center of Ionia is hosting both a Blood Drive and Bone Marrow Screening event in honor of our little fighter, Lily Goodwin, student at Boyce Elementary and daughter of our long-time nurse, Kim Girlie. Lily was diagnosed in 2016 with Acute Myeloma Leukemia (AML) and recently received her life saving stem-cell transplant from a donor found through be the Match. The Spectrum Hospitals, along with Helen Devos Children's Hospital, all receive their life saving blood supply from MIBlood, which is why Lily's family asked if we would host an event with them to help show how much we appreciate their service.You may schedule an appoitment for the blood drive by going to: http://donate.miblood.org/donor/schedules/drive_schedule/99749
Walk-ins will also be accepted for the blood drive and the bone marrow screening.
