CHICAGO (CBS) — The Blackhawks are helping to host two blood drives this Saturday for one of their biggest fans – a Chicago teen with leukemia.
WBBM Newsradio’s Nancy Harty reports Emma Gomez doesn’t follow normal medical expectations. Her mother said, after essentially falling into a coma for five weeks, the 14-year-old leukemia patient just started talking one day.
Now Lifesource is teaming up with the Blackhawks for a blood drive and bone marrow donor registry in Emma’s honor.
“I am the biggest fan of the Hawks,” Emma said.
