CoSA participates in Blood Drive for Alumna on 2/8

When CoSA alumna Marie Saradpon approached Musical Theatre Director Barbara Wolf about having CoSA's Tour Group perform at her daughter's blood drive on February 8th, Barb and students jumped on the opportunity to support this important event.

Marie's daughter Kamila was born with a rare and severe form of anemia that requires blood transfusions every three weeks. She received her first transfusion at Rady Children's Hospital when she was two months old. She has needed them every four weeks since then and will continue to depend on them for the rest of her life. Individuals who donate help ensure that blood is available for Kamila and patients like her whose lives depend on it.

February 8th is Kamila's birthday. The blood drive is from 11:30 am to 5:00 pm at "Sushi on a Roll", 1620 National Ave, San Diego 92113.  CoSA's Tour Group will be performing from 12:50 - 1:10. If you can't make it that day, schedule an appointment to donate by logging on to sandiegobloodbank.org or call 1-800-469-7322.

Happy Birthday from CoSA, Kamila!
