Goldglantz suffered 3rd degree burns over 92% of his body on November 17, 2008 when a gas can in his backyard exploded. He has received numerous blood products since the accident including red blood cells and platelets.

As a burn victim, he will require several more platelet and red blood cell transfusions during the recovery process. To make sure he has enough blood on hand, his wife, Danielle Goldglantz and friends are hosting a blood drive with a goal of collecting 90 units of blood to help replenish the local blood supply.

The blood drive is located at Eastern Regional High School at 1401 Laurel Oak Road in Voorhees, NJ, and Donors of all blood types are welcome.

"We never imagined that blood transfusions would become part of our family's everyday life," said Danielle Goldglantz. "It is because of the generosity of blood donors that Evan and many other victims can fight for their life."

Blood drives are held seven days a week in communities across the region. To make an immediate appointment for an American Red Cross blood drive this week, please call 1-800-GIVE LIFE (1-800-448-3543), or visit to find a listing of community blood drives.

Most healthy people who are at least 17 years old and weigh 110 pounds or more are eligible to donate whole blood every 56 days. In January of 2008 a law went into effect in the state of Pennsylvania that allows 16-year-old donors to donate blood with parental or legal guardian written consent. Donors can give blood at any one of nearly 200 blood drives sponsored by business and community groups in southeastern Pennsylvania and in New Jersey weekly, or at one of nine community donor centers.
