Police To Hold Blood, Bone Marrow Drive March 17

Have you heard about Tyler Seddon? Lakewood Police did and we’re busy signing cards here at the station. We invite our fellow first responders such as West Pierce Fire & Rescue and the surrounding area Police Departments and Fire Departments to join us in making sure this little guy’s birthday wish far exceeds his hope!

Tyler’s story also reminded us that there is a very real, and great, need for bone marrow donors all across the country, including right here in Washington State. Since we can’t make it to Rhode Island, the Lakewood Police Department will be hosting a blood and bone marrow drive to find a match for Tyler, and hopefully others, as well.

Please join us here at the Lakewood Police Department, 9401 Lakewood Dr. SW, on Monday, March 17, from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m.
