Press Release (ePRNews.com) - TULSA, Okla. - Mar 15, 2018 - The culmination of the current flu epidemic and a series of storms across the country have drastically impacted blood donations. Community Care College is stepping up to do their part for the community. Oklahoma Blood Institute is hosting a blood drive at the Community Care Campus Wednesday, March 14th from 9 am to 2 pm.
Linda Patterson was a wife, a mother, a fighter, and a blood recipient. She was diagnosed with Cancer in 2008 and fought valiantly for nearly a decade. Linda was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2008 & decided she would fight! Even after a right frontal craniotomy landed her in a coma for 6 weeks, she fought. She overcame numerous strokes & seizures.
In 2017, Linda had a massive brain bleed. She received transfusions of 30 units of packed platelets & 5 units of whole blood to stabilize her. On October 31st, 2017, Linda was released to hospice care, continuing to fight on her own terms. On November 7th, 2017, Linda left this world…but not our hearts.
Linda parted this world November 7th, 2017, at the age of 67 leaving a legacy of love, kindness and friendship. In her honor we are have a goal of 67 donations. We encourage everyone in the community to join us for this event.
Unlike yyogyy many charitable donations, food, clothing, books, blood is both perishable and in constant demand. In addition to helping save lives, the Oklahoma Blood Institute is offering blood donors their choice of limited edition OBI t-shirt. Donors can select from three options: “Strong” olive, “Bold” maroon, or “Fearless” teal. All healthy adults over the age sixteen or older are encouraged to donate.
