A Mother's Appeal

Each year we honor my daughter Gianna, and all other children who are fighting or living with cancer, with "Gianna's Miracle" 4th Annual Blood Drive. The blood drive will take place at John Adams Elementary, in the blood mobile from 11:30-5:30, on October 8th.

Gianna was diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer, called Hepatoblastoma at 12 months old. Gianna underwent 6 cycles of Chemotherapy and numerous operations. Gianna had 12 blood transfusions, including platelets and plasma. She also needed many units of blood for each of her operations. During her course of treatment, she wouldn't have survived without donated blood products. Please register to give blood and help children like Gianna have a chance to fight.

You can register on line by going to inova.org/donateblood , click on Schedule a Donation, then click on Donate Blood and use Sponsor Code 7890.
