CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. (NEWS10) — To celebrate 11 years of being cancer free, Josh Bitter and his family are hosting their annual blood drive Friday.
Bitter was 33 years old when he was diagnosed with a cancer that would later spread to his lungs. He relied on blood donations to help his body recover from chemotherapy treatments.
Bitter and his family want to continue saving the lives of other patients by encouraging the Capital Region to donate blood.

- Queensbury Hotel: 88 Ridge St, Glens Falls, NY 12801
