Cabot Residents Remember Dakota Hawkins
February 17, 2010
Many people in Cabot remember teenager Dakota Hawkins’ quick smile and his courageous battle with leukemia, which he lost in 2006. A blood drive will be held in memory of Dakota from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 25 at the Cabot Junior High South campus at 38 Panther Trail, where Dakota’s father, Henry, is principal.
Blood is used to treat leukemia and many other childhood illnesses, and more is needed by the American Red Cross so that supplies are adequate. Persons wishing donate must have a photo I.D., be at least 16 years of age (with parental permission), meet height and weight requirements, and be in good health. To schedule an appointment, visit www.redcrossblood.org. For more information, contact Brook Davis, American Red Cross, at 501-350-6033.
