6th Annual Lankes Family Blood Drive

June 4, 2019, noon - June 4, 2019, 6 p.m.

Location: Holy Cross Church - Yeazel Hall

Donate Blood in Honor of former iSchool faculty member David Lankes

David Lankes

David was diagnosed with Hodgkins disease in 2013 and had a stem cell transplant in 2014. In 2017 he was diagnosed with Large Diffuse B Cell lymphoma followed by a bone marrow transplant in 2018. In both cases the generosity of blood donors throughout his chemotherapy and transplants kept him alive.

Please donate in support of patients in need of life saving blood products.

Call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit the Red Cross website to schedule an appointment for the Syracuse-area blood drive at Holy Cross Church.

For those outside of the Syracuse area, the Red Cross offers the option to participate in a Virtual Blood Drive for David. Take a photo of yourself donating blood and use the hashtag #VirtualBloodDriveVirtualDave.
