A blood drive is being held Saturday in honor of a local baby with cancer as the Western Lake Erie Blood Services Region sends out a plea for more donations.
The blood drive in honor of Jaxson Hauser will be from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Whitmer High School. Jaxson has received several blood transfusions and rounds of chemotherapy.
The local Red Cross needs 300 units of blood each day to meet the needs of area hospitals. To set an appointment for Saturday’s blood drive, call 419-810-4700.
