Thank you for joining us today at the First Annual LionHeart Owen Foundation birthday Blood Drive! It was a great success! Atleast 200 people celebrated with us in person and rooted on the incredible lifesavers! We had a total of 78 donors register and 51 units donated! Each unit can be broken into 2 which totals102 products donated!! That’s a lot of lives saved!!! Our oldest donor was 87 years young! Due to an incredibly overwhelming response about 40 people were turned away from donating. If you would still like to donate and were unable to join us today, you can visit http://www.desertbloodservices.org and use the LionHeart Owen code: 9058.
The Desert Sun and KESQ were in attendance today and Owen’s birthday will be airing on channel 3 Local News at 6pm and CBS2 local at 6:30 tonight!
A special thank you to the tireless work of the LionHeart Owen blood drive committee, the incredible staff of Desert Blood services, and of course our precious Owen for inspiring all of us to pay it forward and never give up! And lastly we would like to thank our heart family, your support and love is what continues to fuel us and keep Owen alive here on earth! We are forever grateful to all of you!
