Opdyke blood drive will honor area cancer patient

Event is set for Nov. 4

OPDYKE — A special community blood drive will be held in Opdyke next week in honor of Cheryl Wilkerson, who was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in October 2011.

The drive will take place from 3 to 7 p.m. Nov. 4 at the Opdyke Baptist Church, 9208 Opdyke Lane. All donated blood will go to the American Red Cross.

Wilkerson, 53, a life-long Opdyke resident, is remaining in high spirits despite her cancer diagnosis. She hopes the blood drive is a resounding success.

Learn more about the drive Thursday on this site or in the print edition of the Register-News.
