Dr Charles R Drew

Derrick Dodson sent a card of Dr. Charles R. Drew to commemorate Black History Month. Dr. Drew's research focused on blood storage. It immediately brought to mind a good friend who was recently diagnosed with a blood disease and is in need of ongoing transfusions. One doesn't realize how precious blood banks are, and how critical health coverage is, for those whose bodies inexplicably starts to turn on their own blood cells.
