Give Life Drive

SCOOP

BY SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY AUG 4, 2018

Robin Reed-Pearson was planning her wedding. She was a little tired but thought it was just the normal strain of work and life. Routine blood work brought the diagnosis of acute myeloid leukemia. Knowing she had a long journey ahead, Reed-Pearson and her fiancée decided to marry in a hospital courtyard right before she started treatment. After months of chemotherapy, blood transfusions and a bone marrow transplant, Reed-Pearson is now looking forward to celebrating her one-year wedding anniversary and being back at work as the Director of Medical Staff Services at Doctors Hospital of Sarasota. In honor of Reed-Pearson, Doctors Hospital of Sarasota is hosting a registration drive for bone marrow and organ donation as well as a donation drive for platelets and blood. The Give Life Drive will be held on Friday, August 10 from 7:30am until 3:00pm in the education classroom near the front lobby of the hospital. The hospital is collaborating with the Suncoast Blood Bank, Be The Match and LifeLink.
