Locally-Owned Car Wash Hosts March 24th Blood Drive for Boy Awaiting Bone Marrow Transplant

Locally-Owned Car Wash Hosts March 24th Blood Drive for Boy Awaiting Bone Marrow Transplant

A letter from Pat Wirth, Owner of Potomac Falls Express Lube and Car Wash:

Dear Friends,  

March 24, 2012 is Joey Angel's 8th birthday. Guess what he wanted for his birthday? A blood drive to help keep him alive! You see, Joey has Severe Aplastic Anemia and is waiting for a bone marrow transplant. His mother and I are friends and since March is Red Cross month and I am a member of the Loudoun County Leadership Council for the American Red Cross we thought this was a match made in "heaven" (pun intended!). Joey and his family live in Potomac Falls and Janel, his mom, works for Cardinal Bank.
