Kris Niemann was a loving mom, wife, sister, and a cherished friend of her community. Among her volunteer endeavors, Kris worked at the Cooper Siegel Community Library where she delighted patrons by donning a hat for every occasion. When she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder that prevented her body from making enough platelets and blood cells, Kris needed multiple transfusions every few days. At one point, the hospital didn't have enough platelets for her treatment. When Kris' family learned this, they decided to host a blood drive to replenish the community blood supply. After fighting this disease courageously, Kris gracefully surrendered. Please give blood in her memory, to help others in our community continue their fight.
