Dear Friends and Families,
Annand, the son of our great volunteer group leader Holly, is in the
hospital waiting for a heart transplant. He's an incredible, happy,
cheerful four-year-old who has been coming to the Center for Families with
his older sister Lara since he was a baby. Please keep Annand and his
family in your thoughts. If you know the family and wish to be of help,
contact Lucy Hernandez at the Center for Families and she'll pass on your
offer of support (lhernandez at cambridgema.gov or 617-349-6385).
Another way to support Annand, and others in his situation, is to donate
blood if you are able. Heart surgery requires a lot of donated blood, and
though Annand is a common type and we do not have any concerns about his
immediate needs, the Blood Donor Center at Children's Hospital is always in
need of donations for pediatric patients around Boston. To find out more
about donating blood at Children's Hospital you can get more information on
their website at:
Interested in donating blood?
Monday through Thursday: 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Friday: 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Sunday: Platelet appointments available.
Where: Pavilion Building, Children's Hospital Boston Lobby, 300 Longwood
Appointments: You can call ahead and make an appointment or walk in during
our hours of operation
Contact the Blood Donor Center: 617-355-6677
Thanks as always for your part in making Cambridge a "Village" that embraces
all its families and children.
