Kennedy Provides Life Saving Initiatives at St. James Festival Day

St. James Day (002)

On the sixth day of October, with fall weather setting in, Legislator Leslie Kennedy (R-Nesconset) held a bone marrow registration drive in conjunction with DKMS at the St. James Festival Day. The Legislator also operated an information table while promoting the “Yellow Dot Program” and the radio tracking for Autistic and Alzheimer individuals with the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department, a vital new initiative to communicate medical needs during a traffic crash or home based incident. The Suffolk County Police Explorer’s also joined Legislator Kennedy, providing information on the Explorer’s program, handing out coloring books and assisting in our marrow registry.

Fifteen new members registered, while pertinent lifesaving information was distributed to educate the community on this lifesaving treatment that may be a blood cancer patient’s best hope for survival. “The Saint James Chamber of Commerce worked extremely hard in putting this fantastic street fair together,” said Legislator Kennedy. “Every year around 14,000 patients in the U.S. will need a bone marrow or stem cell transplant from a perfect stranger, the more we can raise awareness and register individuals the better the chances are to find a match and save a life”.

Legislator Kennedy will be hosting a blood drive at the Village of Lake Grove, 980 Hawkins Avenue on December 16th from 2:00 – 8:00pm . In order to donate you must bring a valid ID, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds, have gotten no tattoos for the last 12 months, and be sure to eat well and drink fluids before donating. All are encouraged to attend and donate.
