LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - A special drive is taking place this weekend in the name of Bella, a young Laredoan who recently lost her battle to cancer.
At just seven-months old, Bella was diagnosed with leukemia. She underwent countless treatments and had been in and out of remission.
Back in April, Bella lost her battle to cancer; however, her family and supporters who stood by her side are hoping to keep her memory alive by hosting a blood and marrow drive.
The South Texas Blood and Tissue Center in collaboration with Lazy Boy Tattoos are inviting residents to roll up their sleeves and donate blood for a good cause.
Organizers say these blood donations could go to someone who may be fighting a similar battle.
The event will take place at Pla-Mor located on 2819 Bob Bullock Loop on Saturday, September 14th from noon to 5 p.m.
For more information, you can call Liza Guzman at 956-763-7783.
You must be 18 years or older to donate.
