Lucas Goeller Central Blood Bank Community-Wide Blood Drive: June 22-July 10
Lucas Goeller, Fox Chapel, has end stage liver disease. He cannot survive without a whole liver transplant. Since his birth, Lucas has been treated at Childrens Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC. He has had two major surgeries, three blood transfusions and has been hospitalized for multiple weeks.
While Lucas waits for a liver, his family works to increase awareness for patients in similar situations. They are supporting this drive to ensure blood is available when Lucas next has a need, and for other local patients.
