Transform a life, and your own.

Emily Ann Holum (an OLW parishioner) was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia at the age of four. She bravely fought her battle for two years with grace, dignity and determination.

She was small but mighty, earning her the nickname Mighty Mite. During her fight, Emmy needed numerous transfusions of blood products.

For the many times Emmy needed some type of blood product and it was there for Emmy, her family would like to give back. In true Emmy spirit, this blood drive is a way that Emmy can continue to help others.

The Holum family thanks you for your endless support and tireless efforts to keep Emmy’s name and spirit alive. Emmy always loved to help people, especially those in need.
