Lake Saint Louis Blood Drive to Honor Young Cancer Survivor

Giving Blood

The Lake Saint Louis Police Department is sponsoring a blood drive in honor of Anna Dennis on Wednesday, December 14 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Lake Saint Louis Civic Center Council Chambers, 200 Civic Center Drive.

Anna Dennis is a little cancer survivor who fought leukemia for more than two years. During her treatments, she received numerous blood and platelet transfusions. There is no doubt that Anna would not have survived without these transfusions.

Through this battle, the Dennis family has realized the legitimate need for a constant supply of blood in our area. Every day there are kids and adults who owe their lives to blood donors. Blood donations are used by a wide variety of patients and procedures, including surgery and life threatening accidental injuries.

Please come and roll up your sleeve at the “Anna Dennis Blood Drive” and help save another life.

While walk-ins are welcome, it is recommended that donors schedule an appointment. For an appointment, please visit redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor code: AnnaDennis or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
