A blood drive is being held today in memory of a Pella girl who lost her life to a rare blood disease last year. Megan Hoogeveen died in 2011 and her parents have been working to bring awareness to the disease which took her life, known as HLH. During Megan’s treatment she received more than 200 units of blood. The memorial blood drive is being held today at the Vermeer Global Pavillion.
