Westlake Gym Plans Blood Drive For Teen

“The plight of a high school valedictorian who is battling brain cancer has inspired the general manager of a Westlake Village gym and spa to organize a blood drive. Total Woman Gym & Day Spa will sponsor the blood drive in the name of Alex Samuels, Agoura High School’s 17-year-old valedictorian who is battling brain cancer. ‘Donating blood a couple weeks ago really inspired me to put together a blood drive for the children’s hospital, and after reading Alex’s story, I knew that we could get a great response of donors that will love to help a local boy fight his battle with cancer,’ said the gym and spa’s general manager, Shannon Mann. ‘The thought that we could potentially save the life of not only Alex but the hundreds of children in need of blood was reason enough to get this blood drive together,’ she said. The gym and spa is offering each non-member blood donor a free 30-day membership. Complimentary food and beverages are planned.”
