Lexy Becker Blood Drive coming up Saturday

ABERDEEN, S.D.(HubCityRadio)- The 9th Annual Lexy Becker Blood Drive is coming up this Saturday at Zion Lutheran Chuch in Aberdeen.

Lexy’s mom Melissa Becker released the following statement:

“Lexy was diagnosed Acute Myeloid Leukemia, AML. She received chemotherapy and two bone marrow transplants. During the 20 months of treatment, she received over 275 units of blood and over 600 units of platelets! She lost her battle with cancer November 5th, 2012; without the help of blood donors we would not have been able to enjoy her as long as we did. In honor of her birthday, December 17th, we have organized a blood drive. What better way to celebrate her life then by saving a life of another. She would be overjoyed knowing she was helping someone in need. WE NEED YOU! Please consider donating blood in her honor. Contact me to make an appointment.”

You can contact Melissa at (605) 460-3234 or email her at melissahelm@yahoo.com.

The blood drive runs from 11am-5:30pm.
