Blood drive for 12-year-old cancer patient set for Sunday

CRYSTAL LAKE – Bonnie Vonder Haar is about to get a different kind of assist at the Crystal Ice House skating rink.

Vonder Haar, a 12-year-old from Ingleside, has been battling more than her opponents as a member of the Youth-14 Girls Yellowjacket team at Crystal Ice House. She was diagnosed with leukemia in February and has since been receiving treatment Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge.

On Sunday, the rink at 320 E. Prairie St. in Crystal Lake will host “Blood Drive for Bonnie” from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. While walk-ins are welcome, donors are encouraged to schedule their appointment by calling LifeSource at 877-543-3768 or visiting www.lifesource.org and using sponsor code 051G.

Donors are encouraged to eat well, stay hydrated and arrive with proper identification before giving blood.
