Michael H. Lavelle Needs Blood & Platelets
Please keep Michael in your prayers. Prayers are so powerful
My son, Michael H. Lavelle, is currently undergoing treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering for leukemia. He has just completed the first phase of chemo for spinal and bone marrow treatment. He will need a bone marrow transplant plus other treatment. He is in constant need of blood transfusions. MSK has asked that we reach out to others and request blood donations from family, friends and organizations.
If anyone would like to donate blood, in Michael H. Lavelle’s name, please see the attached flyer with info.
If you are unable to help with a blood or platelets donation, please keep Michael in your prayers.
