Blood Drive in Memory of Local Loved One

About once a month Life Stream brings their mobile operation to Menifee in an effort to help save lives. By connecting donors and patients through, as they call it, “the gift of blood” Life Steam is able to give hope and life to those who need it most.

Their March 3rd Bloodmobile appearance will be a little different, however, in that they are hosting this particular blood drive and marrow screening in memory of a local resident who recently lost her battle with cancer.

In September of 2011 Lori Dunkley was diagnosed with stage four small intestine cancer. She received many blood transfusions from Life Stream over the course of the following months. Fondly remembered as a loving wife, mother of three, and involved community advocate Lori’s passing has greatly affected the lives of many around her.

Her type of cancer caused severe anemia to which she required frequent red cell transfusions from Life Stream. You can help other local patients and those fighting cancer by donating blood this March 3rd.

In addition to saving lives, as a thank you for donating each participant (donor) will be entered to win one of three pairs of three-day general admission passes to the Stagecoach Country Music Festival in April 2012.

For your convenience and speed of service, scheduled appointments are now being accepted ahead of time. Contact Life Stream at (800) 879-4484 or visit them at www.lstream.org to reserve your preferred time slot today.

Life Stream reminders for giving blood:
-Be sure to drink plenty of fluids prior to giving blood.
-Remember to eat before giving blood.
-Please bring photo identification with you.
