Southport neighbors (and businesses!) we have lived on Southport for 14 years - love it here. Our son James, who you may recognize from walking up and down Southport daily, was diagnosed with a very rare form of leukemia last year and spent nearly 4 months in the hospital.. a month and a half on a breathing machine and another near 2 months in isolation after a bone marrow/stem cell transplant.

I am writing because we are hosting a blood drive on 12/7 and 12/8 and we are in need of more people to sign up for the drive, which will be hosted at St. Alphonsus and Saint Andrew Parish (thank you so much to both)! I can sign you up directly via email at [email protected], just let me know if 12/7 or 12/8 is better and a preferred time. You can also follow the sign up process on the attached flyer/photo. Also for any businesses owners willing to put a flyer up please message me or shoot me an email.. would greatly appreciate it. Special thanks to Scott D'Agostino, DAGS for all their support and putting flyers on their pizza box tops + posters in the restaurant.. can't thank you guys enough!
