Blood Donation

Hi folks -

Wanted to pass along an opportunity to help out folks in your community & also to help a friend of our very own Coach Janice.

Melissa Focardi is the 7-year old daughter of one of Janice's best friends. Melissa was diagnosed on 1/17/08 with Acute T-Cell Lymphocyctic Leukemia.


Melissa is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatment & is need of blood donations during the process. Melissa is blood type O+. She is being treated @ Miller's Childrens Hospital in Long Beach.

Here is Melissa's website:

More info (from her blood drive organizers):
* She needs 3-5 donations per week (diff. people)
* Donors can donate once a month
* Eat and drink before coming in for donation
* They validate for parking
* If not O+ or O-, they're able to substitute/trade for her blood type (or can go to another person in need)
* Interested donors, call (562)933-0808 to make an appointment, ask for Jesse & mention it is for Melissa Focardi.

Thanks All. And feel free to pass along.
