Our friends and neighbors Joni and Jerry Smith could use your help:
BLOOD DRIVE for JERRY SMITH
Jerry was diagnosed with Acute Myloid Lukemia (AML) – Blood & Bone Marrow Cancer, on September 19th, 2020.
Jerry’s cancer is “extremely aggressive” according to the doctors. He already has had two rounds of chemo and 15 blood transfusions along with multiple Platelet transfusions.
These blood transfusion have LITERALLY kept Jerry alive!! As a result, his family wanted to do something to honor their dad. (Too often, it seems, we wait until people pass before we express our love, gratitude and appreciation for those who have impacted us.)
So, in Jerry’s honor, and the HUGE impact he has had on so many Bloodworks Northwest will open to offer donations specifically in honor of Jerry.
Let’s express our gratitude and love for Jerry and all he has meant in our lives.
