These Patients Need Your Help This Thanksgiving
Date:11/17/2009

NEW YORK, Nov. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As we approach Thanksgiving, "Black Friday" and the holiday season, New York Blood Center (NYBC) calls upon the community to please remember the children and families whose lives are stricken by diagnoses that require frequent blood transfusions for recovery and survival. Among these diseases are leukemia and other forms of cancer, thalassemia and aplastic anemias, sickle cell disease, hemophilia and other diseases.

Please take a few minutes from the holiday shuffle to donate blood. Winter holidays are a time when blood supplies diminish while hospital and patient needs remain the same. It is also a time when it becomes more difficult to find precise blood matches for patients who are very sick. Somewhere, someone is fighting for his or her life.

Liam Matthew Gorman, 5, is diagnosed with a rare form of bone marrow failure called Diamond Blackfan Anemia, and requires life saving blood every two to three weeks. Each time he is transfused, we thank that anonymous donor who helps Liam.

Alex Mele, 15, is an avid baseball player hoping to win his fight against Acute Myelogenous Leukemia, a fast-growing cancer of the blood and bone marrow. Alex is currently suffering a relapse. Cancer patients need blood transfusions because aggressive treatment often destroys healthy blood cells along with diseased ones. Alex is in dire need of a bone marrow match from someone of similar Italian heritage. For more information, please call 1-800-MARROW-2.

Muriel Roth was diagnosed three years ago with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and needed many units of whole blood and platelets while undergoing chemotherapy. Unfortunately, Muriel lost her battle to cancer on September 16, 2009, at the age of 50. Her friends and family hope that the blood drive in her honor will help to save others.

Please consider donating at one of these blood drives during Thanksgi
