06/13/12 — We are sad to report that Thor Burfine, a long-time member of Texas EquuSearch, lost his mom, Louise Wise Burfine, to her long battle with cancer. Thor is requesting that our members who can please donate blood or platelets to their nearest donor location in lieu of flowers. Thor expressed that there is not enough blood or platelets available to treat patients with long-term needs, and there is always a need for blood and platelets to treat many diseases. Please keep Thor and his family in your thoughts and prayers during their time of grief. Thank you in advance for donating the gift of life in memory of Thor’s mom.
