      SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCIV) -- Debbie Moser has more spirit than most people, even with battling breast cancer for the second time.

      "I was devastated,{}but{}as soon as I found a good doctor I was confident I am going to beat this and I am going to beat this," Debbie Moser said.

      Debbie faces chemotherapy treatments almost every week and said at any time she could need blood.

      "You never know with cancer what could happen, some weeks I do better than other weeks I may go in and they would say your white blood cell count is low I may need a transfusion and I have{}O-negative blood type so that is kinda scary," Moser said.{}"People need to go out and give blood."

      Being in the hospital every week, Debbie says she wishes everyone could see the dire need for blood that is always there with those fighting cancer.

      "You{}never know who it's going to hit next, I never thought I would do this again after eight years, but I am going to beat this."

      The American Red Cross and ABC News 4 are hosting a blood drive at Northwoods and Citadel Malls from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. You must be 18 years or older and weigh 110 pounds to donate. The Red Cross will be giving away free Fright Night passes at Boone Hall Plantation{}to the first 50 people who give blood.
