Pioneers Memorial Hospital is organizing a blood drive for a seven month old little girl at Imperial Valley College, Thursday, March 10, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in front of the school gym, 380 E. Aten Road, Imperial.
Seven-month-old Regina was diagnosed with right coronal craniosynostosis (a skull deformity) at four-months-old. She will have a surgery in March to correct her skull and a second surgery in June. Regina will most likely need a blood transfusion during or after surgery. By donating today you can help ensure that blood is available for Regina and patients like her whose lives depend on it.
