This month, we are highlighting Sheryl Hage and her son Christopher, pictured above. Sheryl has been hosting the annual Christopher Krencik Memorial Drive in memory of her son, Christopher since 2011. Between 2011-2018, 241 units of blood have been collected.

This year, Sheryl worked with Emily Hawkins, Eden Town Clerk and they hosted this blood drive together as Emily and Christopher were friends. They promoted it to the Town of Eden as well as those that knew and loved Christopher. The event had a large basket raffle, as well as a food truck supplying hot dogs to all donors!

There were 46 donations made in July on 2019, bringing their total collections to 286 successful donors over the years! These donations have impacted the lives of up to 858 local patients since 2011. We are thankful for the support that Sheryl has shown over the years and are looking forward to a successful future with Sheryl and Emily working together to save lives in our community.
