My name is Bill DeKing, I have been a Firefighter for the Town of Medfield for the last 10 years. Shortly after joining the fire department my wife and I were expecting our first child, during the delivery my wife had some complications and she needed 29 units of blood to survive. Without The American Red Cross and with out the blood donors our lives would be totally different today.
Every year in September I host blood drive with help from members of the Medfield Fire Department as a way to help give back to them and to help save the life of others, every donation can save up to three people.
This years drive will be held on Monday September 21st from 2pm – 7pm at the American Legion in Medfield.
If you can not make it please pass the date and time on to a friend or family member that may be able to make it. Please view our story here The DeKing Family | Real Life Stories | American Red Cross
For an appointment please call 1-800 RED CROSS of visit redcrossblood.org
