Blood Drive on Dec. 14 in honor of Angela Anagnos Whitley

Personal Best Karate* will host a blood drive on *Saturday, December 14,2013* aboard the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/Brigham and Women’s HospitalBlood Mobile, which will be located at* 36 Commercial Street, Route 140,next to Ocean State Job Lot* from *9:00 a.m. *to* 3:00 p.m.* All bloodcollected at the drive will benefit patients at Dana-Farber and Brigham and Women’s.
This blood drive is in honor of Angela Anagnos Whitley, an original Personal Best Karate mom during the very first year of the school’sopening. She was mom to her three boys, Christopher, Brendan and Jordan,who all trained at Personal Best.  Life dealt Angela a tough challenge 19years ago with a diagnosis of breast cancer.  With the determination andsupport of people like you, she was able to live those years. Throughoutthat time, she made it a goal to educate people of the importance of givingthat special gift of blood / platelets. She always said, *“This issomething money cannot buy. Only one's time will keep us going and save thelives of many.” *Angela’s fight ended on March 14, 2013.
People undergoing treatment for cancer—as well as accident victims,transplant recipients, and many other patients—depend on transfusions tocontrol their bleeding. Volunteer donors are the only source of bloodproducts for these patients.
All Angela asked was that, "If you cannot give, please *ASK* someone who*CAN* so someone can have the chance to live.”
