A good news blast as we approach the beginning of our 10th season:
Aidan Coll, a Litchfield Hills player from Bantam thru Seniors who was part of our inaugural season, has committed to play division I lacrosse at Drexel University in Philadelphia. He is currently a junior at the Hill School in Pottstown, PA.
As you may have heard, one of the very first athletes to join our lacrosse organization, who went on to attend and play for Avon Old Farms, Gavin Touponse, has been fighting a rare disease called “Aplastic Anemia” (a life-threatening blood disorder) for the past five months. When he first became ill, he required blood transfusions every 36 hours, had a bone marrow biopsy, a liver biopsy, and was subjected to intense medication therapy. Over the past twelve weeks, Gavin has finally started to make progress, as his body is starting to produce blood products again on its own. We are beyond ecstatic that Gavin appears to be turning a corner!
That being said, without the generosity of complete strangers who were willing to donate blood, Gavin’s story may be very different. In turn, I am writing to request that the Litchfield Hills family come together to honor Gavin by contacting the American Red Cross to donate blood. There is a blood drive at Washington Montessori School on December 4th, as well as multiple drives around the state (including a blood drive in Gavin’s honor at Avon Old Farms). By signing up and taking an hour out of your day to help, you can save lives and help to make a difference to people just like Gavin.
Since I began giving blood to help Gavin’s cause, I have discovered that each donation I make can save up to three lives. In addition, my A negative blood type is very rare (only 3% of people in the world have this blood type), so I feel even more compelled to help out any way I can. I’m quite confident that you will realize how necessary (and easy) it is to donate, as well. You can contact the American Red Cross at 800-733-2767 to arrange a donation.
On behalf of Gavin, his parents Susan and George (a founding Board member), and his twin brother Bradley, thank you so much for your help…
