A blood drive has been set up this Wednesday (December 1, 2021) for Tottenville High School student, Erika Cavaliere. 18 year old Erika from Staten Island suffers from Cooley’s anemia, a disorder that weakens her body and threatens her internal organs and needs bi-weekly blood transfusions.

The Cavaliere/Cooley’s Anemia Foundation Blood Drive takes place from 2:30PM to 7:45PM at the Staten Island Donor Center. The Center is located at 2791 Richmond Avenue in SI, New York. Those with ANY blood type are encouraged to donate.

Sign up at the official New York Blood Center site or call (800) 933-2566. Staten Islanders can also make appointments at the Donor Center online.

Quotes below are from Erica’s mother.

“They didn’t have her blood, and her blood count went way down, she had no strength. That’s why she needs the blood transfusion, to give her strength. Sometimes, she can’t even get out of bed.’’

“It’s not only for my daughter, but for other people that need transfusions — blood diseases, car accidents, surgeries,’’ Cavaliere said. “It’s really bad right now.’’

You may donate blood if you are at least 17 years old (16 years old with written consent from parent or legal guardian), weigh at least 110 pounds, and are in good health.

Staten Island Blood Drive set for Teen with Severe Condition on 12/1/21. DiscussPW is a mix of Pro Wrestling and Entertainment. The site was started in 2017 and has gone thru many changes over the years. Our main focus was events and tickets, but then the pandemic happened. We had to mix things up and will now be doing a lot more news. Events will still be covered, just as news instead of on a calendar. This site had an extensive events calendar, which we have moved away from. Pro wrestling has always been our main thing, we also do a lot of entertainment though. For example, we post movie trailers, tv previews and other kinds of news. We have a few discussions but strongly encourage comments on all of our posts. Be sure to keep things civil while commenting.
