Canadian Blood Services is celebrating National Blood Donor Week by rallying communities across the country to come together and show that collectively, blood donations can make a life-saving impact on someone’s life.

In Sylvan Lake, family and friends will celebrate the memory of Stacy Regier by thanking donors at an “In Honour” blood drive at a mobile clinic June 23 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Fox Run School.

Regier was involved in a tragic collision in October 2008. At Calgary Foothills Hospital she received many blood products but eventually succumbed to her injuries after a hard fought battle. Regier left behind family and friends who are dedicated to keeping her memory alive.

“Stacy’s Legacy is one of hope and giving; through an annual golf tournament to honour her memory, Stacy’s Legacy has raised enough money to donate numerous pieces of equipment to the intensive care unit at Foothills Hospital,” said a news release from Canadian Blood Services.

Friends and family will be celebrating Stacy’s memory by giving patients in need of another chance at life, and invite Sylvan Lake residents to book appointments to save lives. From June 18-23, they will be donating blood in her honour at clinics in Calgary, Red Deer and Sylvan Lake.

The June 23 Sylvan Lake mobile clinic is currently only 40 per cent booked. Canadian Blood Services and the Regier family are asking Sylvan Lake residents to book their live-saving appointments.

Go online at or call 1-888-2-DONATE (1-888-236-6283) to book an appointment for the clinic in Sylvan Lake.
