Cancer Society hosts Blood Drive

Monday, September 6th, 2010

Miguel, treasurer of the San Pedro Cancer Society, donated some blood on Saturday.

The San Pedro Cancer Society held a blood drive on Saturday to help collect much needed blood for two of the community’s own. A young man who suffered an unfortunate accident last week has been undergoing several surgeries and requires blood, whereas another gentleman who is scheduled to receive treatment after falling off of a building where he works, will also be a recipient of some of the blood collected during the drive.

Monica, President of the San Pedro Cancer Society, alongside Mary, a member of the Society, prepare to head in and give some blood.

Dr. Severo Guerrero Jr, “Severito”, fills in his form to determine if he can donate. He also donated blood.
Below, Mr. Milo Paz also fills out his form before donating to this very worthy cause.

During the day there was a food sale of tamales and tamalitos de chaya. The Cancer Society joined forces with The Belize National Blood Transfusion Service for this very worthy activity.

Kudos to all who showed up, and donated, bought food or pledged their support.
