A gift of life

Southeastern Louisiana University nursing sophomore Channing Maumus of New Orleans bravely gives blood for the first time at a replacement drive held on campus Monday (March 24) and sponsored by the fraternity Delta Tau Delta. Assisting is technician Jamie McClay with the Blood Center.
The drive was held on behalf of two-year-old Emma Romsky of Jefferson, who is awaiting a stem cell transplant for treatment of a cancerous tumor of her muscles. The fraternity helped collect 54 blood donations, going over its goal of 50.
