Blood Drive for 5-Year Old

Michelle Koopman is Folsom 5-year old with aplastic anemia, a rare blood disorder that causes the body to stop producing red and white blood cells. She has undergone several blood transfusions, but needs more. A blood drive is being held at Oak Meadow Elementary in El Dorado Hills on Friday, from 3-6 pm. You can also donate blood in her name at any local BloodSource. Story in the Folsom Telegraph.
