A message from a current Oak Family:
“In August of 2017, Amelia was diagnosed with Kawasaki disease, a potentially fatal childhood disease. Each year, over 5,000 American children are diagnosed with this disease, characterized by inflammation of the blood vessels throughout the body. The only treatment is a high dose of intravenous gamma globulin (IVIG). It takes thousands of blood (plasma) donors to create one dose of IVIG. Thankfully, Amelia received her dose at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago, and is healthy today thanks to all the blood donors that made it possible! Giving blood helps save lives! ” – Jeff & Darlene Bingham
