OAK HILL - Organizers are preparing for an annual blood drive to honor a local woman who died from breast cancer.

The Terri Massey Memorial Blood Drive is this Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Oak Hill Gospel Tabernacle. Organizers hope to collect at least 150 units of blood to surpass the regional blood drive record of 149 units.

Appointments are still available and walk-ins are welcome. Organizers said it is important to donate because blood transfusions can extend lives. “We know what it's like as a family for one of your family members to need blood,” explained Adam Treadway, Massey’s sister. “We're excited to help give somebody else blood that's going to need it and that's in a tough situation in the hospital or any kind of sickness that they may be facing.”

To make an appointment, call or text 304-663-2410 or 304-640-6996. Or you can email dktread@gmail.com.
