Donate Blood In Honor Of Amelia Heider Amelia Heider, a local American Red Cross blood donor, was deferred from giving blood three months in a row. After a health history assessment, her hemoglobin level produced a low result which prevented her from donating blood. This action led her to seek the advice of her doctor. In April 2022, she was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. To help keep blood on the shelves, the Heider family is holding a blood drive In Honor of Amelia. We hope this blood drive will encourage people to donate blood on a regular basis to help all in need.
