Peyton Smith was born Thanksgiving morning, 11/22/12 weighing in 7 lbs and 14 oz – just a doll. She is the proud grand niece of brother Larry Mabra in Lewisville, Past Master of Lancaster Lodge No. 160 and a former DDGM for our own Michael Nanny. Larry has asked for our help.
Peyton underwent a liver transplant January 6th and is recovering wonderfully here at Texas Children’s Hospital- a real miracle in progress! As expected, the costs are burying the Smith family – and that’s where we think we can help.
Here’s what she has required so far:
Red Blood Cells: 11,930 ml at 300 ml/unit – about 40 units total
Platelets: 811 ml at 40 ml/unit – about 20 units total
Plasma: 2,946 ml at 250 ml/unit – about 12 units
Cryoprecipitate: 270 ml at 12ml/unit – about 23 units
This blood drive will help offset the tremendous costs of this treatment – We will schedule a group trip to the donor center.
