Dojo donation at DHMC

  • ">

    Sensei Rob Rheaume reacts as Samantha Shepard removes the equipment from his arm after donating two bags of blood platelets for almost two hours at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center Blood Donor Program in Lebanon, N.H., on Wednesday, June 19, 2019. Their bracelets read "Team Jaidyn Claw," which is the dojo name of Jaidyn Harlow, 16, who was recently diagnosed with Acute B- Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Harlow is a member of the National Institute of Modern Martial Arts Dojo in Claremont, N.H., and other members of the dojo came in to donate blood to the hospital on her behalf. "We always refer to it as our dojo family. When something happens to one of us, we all do what we can to help." said Rheaume, who is an instructor at the karate school. Shepard remarked how great it is to have the community come together. "You can't make this stuff in a lab," she said. (Valley News - Joseph Ressler) Copyright Valley News.
