Canadian Blood Serviced in Charlottetown in fully booked Tuesday, Feb. 19 after a Guardian article highlighting a campaign asking for donations in honour of Ron St. Onge of Stratford.
The city blood clinic is encouraging people to make appointments for later this week to donate in honour of St. Onge as some walk-ins may be turned away Tuesday.
St. Onge was diagnosed in 2014 with cancer unknown primary, which is when cancer cells are found in the body but the location where the cancer started is unknown.
He died from the disease in 2016.
His wish was to not make his death something sad, but to bring something good from it.
He asked his wife for people to donate blood to Canadian Blood Services in his honour.
