Blood drive helps infant with blood disorder

You could help save the life of an infant.  One-year-old Sebastian Adams must have frequent blood transfusions to live.

He inherited a blood disorder that causes his spleen to kill his red blood cells.  But Sebastian has type O negative blood, which means he can only receive blood from another type O donor.

That's why the Louisville Red Cross is having its first ever Type-O-only blood drive.

The disorder has meant almost one transfusion a month for Sebastian since his birth.

Sebastian is the son of a Louisville police officer.   The blood drive goes until 7 o'clock Monday at the Louisville FOP Lodge.
