LIMERICK – Blessed Teresa of Calcutta Parish in Limerick, Montgomery County, is holding a bone marrow drive from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 13, to help find a match for Justin, a 1-year-old parishioner and student in Blessed Teresa of Calcutta’s child care program. Justin was recently diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia.
The more participation in this program the better chance Justin has of finding a match and saving his life. The drive is being coordinated by Kelly Bouthillette, director of the child care program for the parish. For more information please contact her at 484-300-7922.
