“Throughout Elena’s health struggles, she’s undergone many surgeries – including one to rebuild her esophagus from her colon – and received many blood transfusions from family members and strangers, Perez said.

“I wouldn’t have a daughter if there weren’t blood donations,” Perez said. “It’s saved her life time and time again.”

From 2 to 8 p.m. Friday at Galati’s Hideaway, 800 Feinberg Court, Cary, a blood drive will be held to celebrate life by giving life, Perez said. Appointments can be scheduled by calling LifeSource at 877-543-3768, or by registering at www.lifesource.org using code 274G. Walk-ins are welcome, and those donating must show an ID.”
