The Tulsa Red Cross is hosting a series of blood donations for the spring season.

When Matt Deyo was a senior in high school, he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a cancerous bone tumor. During his 14-month regimen of aggressive chemotherapy, he received more than 90 units of red blood cells and platelets.

“Being an 18-year-old cancer patient was difficult because my life suddenly took an unexpected detour,” said Deyo, now cancer-free. “But going through that life-changing experience led me down an amazing path and helped me decide to pursue a medical career.”
