• Hands Across the Bay Hosts The Logan Hooker Blood Drive

    (St. Petersburg, FL. January 31, 2017)  Six year old Logan Hooker received his first blood transfusion within eight hours of birth. He has needed additional ones at regular intervals ever since.  Three years ago, Logan was finally diagnosed with a rare blood disorder, Pyruvate Kinease Deficiency or Chronic Anemia.  To help provide blood donations for Logan and other patients who need them to live, Julie Weintraub’s “Hands Across the Bay” is sponsoring a blood drive in his honor.
