Earlier this year, Justin Pritikin, son of Liberty Lake’s Owners/Directors Andy & Jill, was diagnosed with leukemia, a cancer of the blood. Thankfully his illness was discovered early and he is responding positively to treatment, but Justin still has a long road of recovery ahead of him.
Leukemia patients like Justin are in need of blood every day.
