Red Cross Blood Drive in honor of Church Member battling Breast Cancer
The American Red Cross is asking donors who are feeling healthy and well to make an appointment to give blood and help keep the blood supply stable for patients who rely on lifesaving transfusions. The community is invited to give blood in honor of church assistant, Diane Doehrman, at a special Red Cross blood drive held in her name on Monday, October 12, from 1-6pm at First Baptist Church in Social Circle. Doehrman has been an instrumental part of starting the community blood drives. Her battle with breast cancer began 14 years ago. Currently, she has a malignant mixed Mullerian tumor, which is an incurable cancer. Doehrman is currently the ministry assistant at First Baptist Church Social Circle. She has served on the hometown board, she volunteers with Walton County Relay for Life, and has lived in the area for over 25 years. She loves her community. “Diane has a passion for the Red Cross mission and was a faithful donor until she was diagnosed,” said Christina Bailey, account manager for the Red Cross Georgia Blood Services Region. “She is extremely grateful for those who volunteer to donate their blood, so that she could make additional memories with her family, friends, and community.” The Red Cross encourages eligible individuals to schedule an appointment, download the free Blood Donor App, visit RedCrossBlood.org, call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or enable the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo device. sponsor code: SocialCircle.
