I have learned this lesson the hard way when my late husband had a stroke. I was talking to him one moment and the next he was having a stroke that left him in a wheelchair. Later he got leukemia and had to have a lot of blood transfusions. The employees at Burns had a blood drive for Ken and made a big difference for him. Such a hard lesson happened to one of my employee’s wife. On Thursday she was at work and feeling fine and on Friday she was in intensive care and has been there ever since. When one member of our work family is hurting we all feel pain and helplessness. We want to do something, we want to make it better for her and for our employee. She is receiving blood transfusions and we have found a way to help, a little. In connection with her employer and with the help of Burns employees we are having a blood drive. The blood drive will be at Burns Mailing & Printing, on September 19th, 2016 from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. Our address is 6131 Industrial Heights Dr., Knoxville, TN 37909. Phone 865 584-2265 if you have questions about the blood drive.
Please come out and donate blood, if you are able, and help our employee’s wife and, of course, any blood not used will go to help others in our community. Blood is truly the gift of life.
