The Rev. Greg Ryan Memorial Blood Drive
Please donate blood at our Blood Drive scheduled for August 9, 2017 between 2:00 – 7:00 pm. Our drive is being held in honor of the life and ministry of the Rev. Greg Ryan, Pastor at Oakland Christian United Church of Christ. Greg recently died as a result of a recurrence of a form of leukemia. We are hosting this drive to remember his ministry and devotion to reconciliation.
Greg suffered from an aggressive type of acute myeloid leukemia (https://www.cancer.org/cancer/acute-myeloid-leukemia.html). He had gone into remission in 2016 only to have a recurrence earlier this year. Ultimately, his recurrence took his life.
Please help us exceed our goal of 16 units during the drive. If you would like to sign up for a donation appointment please visit: https://donateblood.vablood.org to sign up. The location is St. John’s Episcopal Church and our donation site number is 3767.
