Sign up to give blood next week ‘in honor of Shauna Breekner’ at Lake Highlands Elementary

Lake Highlands Elementary had 42 blood donors, 11 platelet donors and 45 people sign up for the bone marrow registry during a 2014 drive which also was dedicated to a family member of an LHE student.

The Lake Highlands Elementary community several months ago learned one of their own moms, Shauna Breeckner, is facing Non-Hodgkins Lymphona.

In addition to setting up a crowd fundraising page to assist the family, the school will host a blood drive next Wednesday (April 26) from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

Look for the Carter BloodCare busses at 9501 Ferndale.

You can pre-register and schedule your appointment here. For more information, contact the drive coordinator Caroline.Porter@risd.org

(Questions about your eligibility to give with Carter BloodCare? Call 1.888.480.8200.)
