In honor of Mary Kate Lee, the American Red Cross is hosting a Blood Drive on March 13th, at the Nixon School.   3:00-8:00.  Call 800-Red-Cross to a make an appt.  Or email klee01776@gmail.com with any questions


In July 2010,  at the age of 8, Mary Kate was diagnosed with Burkitt’s Lymphoma - a rare form of aggressive Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Mary Kate received amazing care at Boston Children’s Hospital/Dana Faber.  While Mary Kate was in treatment, she received countless life-saving blood transfusions.  We cannot thank those selfless donors enough. 


 Mary Kate has been cancer-free for over two years. She attends 5th grade at Nixon School, loves playing soccer, skiiing, animals and spending time with her older brother ( James) and younger sister ( Norah) . She is a survivor!  


Donating blood is one of the most important, selfless, and humanitarian acts that a human can perform, and it doesn't cost a penny. How much blood is needed? Close to forty thousand units is needed every day in America alone. That calculates to someone in this country - a cancer patient, a trauma patient - needing blood every two seconds.


Please consider saving a life.
