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: 
www.childrenshospital.org/about/Site1394/mainpageS1394P6.html

Interested in donating blood?
When:
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 
Ave., Boston

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.
