Forty eight units were collected during a Miller Keystone blood and platelet replacement drive held Sunday at the West Penn Fire Company in support of Harold "HT" Fryer, of New Ringgold, who is undergoing recovery treatment for Aplastic Anemia, a rare but serious medical condition where bone marrow does not replenish the body with new red and white cells. At times, it can be a potentially fatal condition. HT says he is currently doing well with the new treatment. Family member Kelly Boerner stated her appreciation to all who took time to come out and donate. Pictured donating double platelets, a 90-minute process, are Barbara Koch and Clint Schock.
