Danny Dimillo, Jr. graduated in 2016 from Lockport Senior High school.  He was a member of the Donate Life Club where he learned how impactful spreading awareness about organ, tissue, eye and blood donation can be for those in need! 
 
Danny’s father, Dan, was very young when he was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and tragically passed in 2016.  His treatment required him to receive a lot of blood transfusions.  His family was very touched and grateful for those blood donors who stepped up to give the “gift of life” and potentially tried to help his dad survive.
 
Danny wanted to do something special in memory of his father and “pay it forward” to other local patients in need of blood transfusions.  On August 9th, the family held the first Memorial blood drive to honor their dad, husband and brother at All Saints Parish Hall in Lockport.  It was a huge success and collected over 60 units of blood!
 
Unyts is very proud of you Danny for coming full circle - from a student in our Donate Life Club to now a young adult implementing your passion to our mission and making a difference in our community!
