Koerner is battling a type of cancer called Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). It occurs in one out of every 29,000 children in the United States each year.

The blood drive is located at Grenloch Community Center at 463 Hurfville-Grenloch Road in Sewell, 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 Nicole Koerner. "It is because of the generosity of blood donors that Ellie 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.
