Haley’s orbit

It was a golden opportunity and a golden anniversary to donate blood at the Greenhouse Cafe on June 27, when Haley’s Comets flew in for its 50th blood drive at the Third Avenue spot.

Greenhouse owners Bobby and Kelly Daquara’s daughter Haley inspired the drives that are held at the restaurant. Haley, who passed away, was born with Hurler Syndrome, a disease that required frequent bone marrow transplants. Seeing others’ donations help Haley drove home the need for more blood drives, Daquara said.

“After her diagnosis, and once we got her medical condition under control, we realized that was the time to start giving back,” he explained.

So in honor of the memory of Haley Gray Daquara, the call was made for giving donors to again roll up their sleeves and give a pint or two.

Haley’s mantra was always “I can do it.”

Standing O says, “You can do it, too.”
