“10 for 10” Community Challenge: In honor of our 10th annual blood drive in Radnor Township, donations will be made to 10 local organizations that serve Radnor and surrounding communities, including Radnor Fire Company, Wayne Food Pantry and the Women’s Resource Center. See the complete list of beneficiary organizations at www.chablooddrive.org.
The Carol H. Axelrod Memorial Blood Drive honors the memory of Philadelphia-area resident Carol Axelrod, who became dependent on blood products while being treated for multiple myeloma, an incurable cancer of the blood and bone marrow. Because blood was available every time she needed a transfusion, she was able to celebrate her 60th birthday and see her granddaughter turn three years old before she passed away in July 2008. Her family founded the memorial blood drive later that year, with a mission of enabling other patients to spend more time with their loved ones by furthering understanding of the importance of donating blood. The blood drives held in Carol’s memory to date have collected enough blood products to have helped more than 15,000 patients.
