BELLEVILLE, IL (KTVI)-Sgt. Jon Brough, the police officer who nearly gave his life to protect others, is once again joining the American Red Cross in urging residents to donate blood. In November 2006, Brough was shot in the face while trying to apprehend a double homicide suspect. Brough received 12 units of blood in his initial surgeries. He received many more in his follow up care and treatment.
Once again, the Quail Club and The Millstadt Optimists are hosting a blood drive in Sgt. Brough’s honor. It will be held at the Quail Club on Concordia Church Road in Belleville on Tuesday, July 14 from 2pm-7pm. Walk ins are welcome, but if you’d like to make an appointment visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767) and use the sponsor code "QuailClub." All who come to donate will receive a special t-shirt designed by Sgt. Brough.
