Loma Linda Academy Family Volunteer Night Helps Thousands in Need


“God blessed us with healing,” Fabella said. “I tell people they may be a match. It’s a very small thing compared to what Jesus gave.”

Beverly Lovejoy, nurse coordinator for pediatric blood and marrow transplant at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital was on hand to sign up potential bone marrow donors with Be The Match, operated by the National Marrow Donor Program. She said 12 pediatric patients at the children’s hospital were currently in need of marrow donations. The volunteer night donor opportunity “isprobably the best way a member of the community can give back to patients at the hospital who are requiring a transplant,” she said.

Mindy Canwell, a kindergarten teacher at the academy arrived with her aunt, Wendy Nelson, and cousins, Nikki and Andie Nelson, both juniors. “We’re here to support our school. It’s such a great opportunity to get involved in our community,” Canwell said. “It’s nice to see families working together.”
