 On July 10, 2012, Haleigh was diagnosed with a rare disease known as Moyamoya.  Moyamoya syndrome is a disease in which certain arteries in the brain are constricted. Blood flow is blocked by the constriction, and also by blood clots (thrombosis). In children it tends to cause strokes or seizures.  Haleigh had brain surgery on September 4th and for an indefinite period will require ongoing medical checks for at least another year.


Blood transfusions potentially may be an important part of her ongoing medical if her blood counts decline or her immune system becomes compromised.

Less than 5% of the eligible population donates blood. All blood types needed. You can donate blood every 56 days.


If you have medical questions or have been out of the country since 1980, you can call The Blood Center’s Metairie Donor Center at 504/887-2833.


At least 48 hours in advance drink a lot of fluids to hydrate your veins. Plan to eat before donating otherwise you may not be able to donate blood.



If you cannot donate blood, there are other options to help Contact Suzy Potter at (504) 939-9609 or

Earth Hour 2013

Tenant Memo
March 18, 2013
Earth Hour 2013: Renewable Energy

Earth Hour is on Saturday the 23rd of March, 2013 from 8:30 PM – 9:30 PM

What is Earth Hour?

This year’s theme for Earth Hour is renewable energy. Participants are encouraged to focus on the type of energy we use: renewable energy is much cleaner than fossil fuels and works with our planet instead of against it.

1515/1555 Poydras & the Jones Lang LaSalle Management Team are working towards A Cleaner Tomorrow! We will be playing a vital role in Earth Hour 2013 and you can help us Go Beyond the Hour to have a Cleaner Tomorrow too!

Jones Lang LaSalle buildings across the world are joining in the effort and will participate in Earth Hour!  1515/1555 plans to show our support for our planet. We challenge our Tenants and Vendors to take part in their very own Earth Hour!  This is not just to save energy for an hour, but it’s a change of attitude and lifestyle.  If we, along with billions of others around the world express our concern over our ecological crisis & climate change and be a bit more environmentally friendly, the planet will be a much better place during our lives and our children’s lives.

How do you participate?  
At the office…
1st…before leaving your office March 22nd, please turn off all unnecessary lights in the office. (Janitorial will assist in this effort as well by turning off lights as they finish cleaning on this evening.)
2nd…turn off your computers, computer screens and printers. 
3rd …turn off any unnecessary office equipment and unplug the transformers.  Did you know that transformer plugs continue to drain power when left plugged in and not in use?
At home…
1st…do the same type of things identified above for your office at home.
2nd…go through each room of your home and see what you can turn off or unplug.
3rd…make it a party with candle lights, cookouts, crawfish boils and bon fires.   
4th…encourage family, friends and others to take part in Earth Hour 2013.
If you choose to go “Beyond the Hour” and take action for our planet, don’t forget to log on to and tell everyone about it!
Thank you to everyone who plans to take part—and to everyone who continues to support the environment to help ensure a sustainable future for our families, our firms and our planet.

Thanks again,
JLL Management Team
