RIPON - Three-year-old Ripon toddler Ryan McGowan is sorely in need of blood donations.

A Delta Blood Bank blood drive is scheduled for Friday, July 20, at the Calvary Church “Almost Home” suite across the street from the main church building at 741 West Second Street from 2:30 until 7:30 p.m.

Ryan has reportedly been having one blood transfusion a week that needs to be replenished in kind by donations from family and friends as well as the general public.

The young boy has also been diagnosed with liver failure and intestinal problems, has had his pancreas removed and is now diabetic, according to family members.  He has had a total of seven operations at his young age.
