According to statistics provided by the Leukemia and

Lymphoma Society, someone dies from a blood cancer every 10 minutes. That’s one death every six hours; with more deaths resulting from blood cancer among children and young adults than from any other cancer.

The donation will be given out at a regular meeting of the Nipomo Rotary Club.
