Community First ER is always looking for ways to give back to the community, especially where it is needed most. The blood shortage at MD Anderson Cancer Center is critically low and the best way to help is to put an action plan together. With the help of Project Joy and Hope, Community First ER was able to fill all the blood donation slots.
“We just want to thank Project Joy and Hope for their generosity, time, and commitment to helping make our MD Anderson blood drive a success. I was beyond excited to give MD Anderson representative, Sheryl Dickeson the great news that today we will be able to impact the lives of 90 cancer patients! Also, We greatly appreciate Cammie Schultz for her advocacy and who is also fighting cancer. Despite her challenges she still finds the way to give back by supporting and volunteering at Project joy and Hope. She is truly an inspiration to all of us.” – Jennifer Almaguer, Community Liaison for Community First ER
“Blood donations save lives. Volunteer blood donors will impact the lives of up to 3 cancer patients. MD Anderson is experiencing blood shortages due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our patients rely on blood transfusions for their comprehensive treatment plans and complex surgeries. Your donations will help maintain our inventory levels, so daily patient blood needs are not negatively affected.” – Sheryl Dickerson, Community Representative for MD Anderson Cancer Center.
