Neighbors Helping Neighbors

As some of you already know, Christopher Marshall, 13,
was suddenly diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, also known as ALL, over Memorial Day weekend. He was immediately admitted to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, where a wonderful team of doctors and nurses have been giving him the best possible care. Chris has received chemotherapy and transfusions of red blood cells and platelets, as an
important part of his treatment. He will continue this
treatment for the next three years.

Chris is the son of Dean and Nancy Marshall, of
Mt. Lebanon, and has an older brother, John, 14,
and a younger sister, Lindsey, 11. Chris just finished
the 7th grade at Mellon Middle School. The family
attends Beverly Heights Presbyterian Church.
The community is encouraged to donate blood at
this special blood drive to help replenish the community
blood supply from which Chris is using and in
support of his journey back to health. Please donate
blood in honor of Chris!

Central Blood Bank is the not-for-profit organization
that supplies the blood products and transfusion related
services to more than 40 hospitals in western
Pennsylvania, northern West Virginia, and eastern
Ohio, including Children’s Hospital.
