Blood Drive In Memory of Tim (Tanner) Allison
A blood drive in memory of Tim (Tanner) Allison will be held on Sunday, September 23 in the lower church hall at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Seekonk from 8:00 - 2:30.
Tim fought through eight years of illness during which he survived Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), a bone marrow transplant and two lung transplants. He was a true fighter and faced every challenge with courage, dignity, and a unique sense of humor. He fought to spend just a little more time with his beloved niece and nephew, Molly and Tommy, and to share his love of life with everyone who knew him. During his treatments he received multiple blood transfusions including 60 units during his second lung transplant. Sadly earlier this year, at the age of 33, Tim lost his fight after complications with this second transplant.
Tim was a graduate of Seekonk High School ('02) and RI College. We are hoping to see many of those whose lives Tim touched, turn out to donate in his memory. This is the first year of what is hoped to become an annual event. Let's make it a great success! Tim would expect nothing less.
