TOI Blood Drive July 15!

by TOI Admin July 14, 2015

You have a chance to become someone’s hero on Wednesday, July 15, 2015 from 9am – 4pm. Once again TOI has partnered with LifeSouth Community Blood Centers to hold a blood drive. There is an emergency need for all blood types. TOI employees plan to make their donations in honor of Riley Hardy.

Riley Hardy, age 3, lives in Trenton, FL. Riley was brought to TOI’s attention by a fellow TOI employee; he is the son of her very close friend. On March 20, 2015 Riley was diagnosed with ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia). He has three years of treatment to undergo, starting with nine months of chemo. Riley will also need frequent blood transfusions during this three year period.


How can you help?

You can help Riley by donating blood at our upcoming blood drive on Wednesday, July 15! For every donation made in his name it counteracts the cost of his future transfusions! Remember, Riley will be receiving multiple transfusions throughout his therapy. When you donate blood (does not matter what type you are) please make sure it's in Riley Hardy's name! To learn more about Riley and other ways you can help, please click here.

You can find the Blood Mobile in TOI Gainesville’s parking lot located near the Physical and Hand Therapy entrances. Each donor will receive a LifeSouth t-shirt and a cholesterol screening.
