Blood drive set in memory of Fields

CROSSVILLE — A blood drive in memory of Patricia Fields will be held July 26 from noon to 6 p.m. at the Crossville Community Complex at 1398 Livingston Road in Crossville.

Patricia Fields was a very special member of the American Red Cross family. She served as the chapter executive for the Cumberland County Chapter of the American Red Cross and was a regular blood donor. During her lifetime, Patricia donated about 30 pints of her own blood to help others.

Blood donation was always important to Fields, but it took on a new meaning in 2011 when she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Despite her brave battle against the disease, Patricia passed away last September.

In loving memory of her life and her passion to help others, the American Red Cross is holding a blood drive on Thursday, July 26 at the Crossville Community Complex located at 1398 Livingston Road in Crossville from noon to 6 p.m.

To make an appointment, please visit http://www.redcrossblood.org/make-donation. Walk-ins are also welcome.

How to Donate Blood:

Call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org for more information or to make an appointment. All blood types are needed to ensure the Red Cross maintains an adequate blood supply. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Donors must be in general good health, weigh at least 110 pounds and be at least 17 years old (16 with completed Parental Consent Form). New height and weight restrictions apply to donors 18 and younger. 

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies more than 40 percent of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
