Blood drive to be held in memory of Dylan Krum

A Miller-Keystone blood drive, in memory of Dylan Krum, will be held at St. Matthew's Evangelical Lutheran Church, 1620 Church Road, Lehighton from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 30. Dylan fought a two-month battle with pediatric follicular lymphoma, a rare type of cancer in children, before passing away at the age of 15 last July. Like many cancer patients, he relied on donated blood products to assist in his treatment. Donated blood also helps hospitals care for premature infants, trauma patients, and burn victims.

Donors who register to donate at this drive, or any MKBC location between now and Sept. 3, have a chance to win a $100 gas card. Winners will be drawn weekly. Prospective donors should call Linda Muffley at (484) 554-7301 to schedule an appointment.
