Columbia, SC (WIS/CNN) - The father of a Georgia college student battling a rare flesh-eating bacteria is rallying others to give blood to help his daughter.
Andy Copeland visited his alma mater, the University of South Carolina, Monday for a blood drive.
He issued a challenge to his daughter Aimee's alma mater, the University of Georgia, to see who could donate the most.
Aimee Copeland, 24, got the flesh-eating bacteria last month, after falling off a homemade zip line and cutting herself.
Since then, she's lost her hands, a leg and a foot to the infection and remains in the hospital.
Because of the amputations, she has received over 300 units of blood.
