Gold & Diamond Source and the community's blood resource, OneBlood, is holding a blood drive and stem cell match event to benefit a 3-year-old Tampa Bay area resident.
Logan Hooker was born with a rare blood disorder and continually needs blood transfusions to live. Doctors are looking for a compatible bone marrow or stem cell donor for a medical therapy they are planning. To aid this effort, Gold & Diamond Source is sponsoring a 'Be The Match' registry and blood drive.
All blood donors will receive a T-shirt, a wellness checkup and a $50 Gold & Diamond Source gift certificate on Saturday (Feb. 8) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Healthy people of at least age 16 and weigh at least 110 pounds can donate blood. Prospective 'Be the Match' registrants must be between the ages of 18 and 44 years old. For further information, visit http://www.bethematch.org.
Gold & Diamond Source is located at 3800 Ulmerton Road, Clearwater.
