PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” The American Red Cross is holding a special blood drive this Friday in memory of Joseph Rougeux.
In 1998, Rougeux was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer.
In 2005, he passed away from a heart attack but was cancer free.
During his treatment, Rougeux had numerous blood transfusions and knew the importance of blood donation.
He was a dedicated Red Cross volunteer and donor who had been recorded as a 24-gallon blood donor.
His wife and children sponsor this blood drive to honor him and to bring awareness to the need for blood donations.
