Just like in a hospital, the 'little doctors' took shifts allowing for many of Countrywood's students to volunteer.

Countrywood’s rescheduled Blood Drive was held Monday March 4th and Principal Barbara Kenney, is pleased to report that the drive was very successful with a total of 42 pints donated. “I would like to thank each one of you who gave the gift of life to help save lives.” Said Principal Kenney.   “I would also like to thank our PTA and Student Council,  Mrs. Burr, Mrs. Trebour, and the Little Doctors for volunteering their time to organize this most important event.”

This Blood Drive was in honor of Liam Matthew Gorman, now a third grader at Maplewood Intermediate School, who was diagnosed with a rare form of bone marrow failure called Diamond Blackfan Anemia. In the past, Liam required life-saving blood every two to three weeks. We are pleased to report that Liam’s anemia is in remission.
