Teenage Leukemia Fighter Shows Us Importance of Blood and Platelet Donations This Holiday Season


I can’t even explain what the feeling is
because it’s just it’s not tiredness, it’s beyond tiredness. It’s not exhaustion
it’s like you feel so terrible. And so I went in and they said, “well you need
blood, that’s why.” Little did we know we would become regulars at the hospital and getting blood transfusions and knowing the phlebotomist by name. We got
over 50+ blood transfusions and it’s good to know that this holiday season I
don’t have to go in as much because I’m in remission and I don’t need them as
much now. So after everything I’ve been through, my family and I had definitely got a new outlook on life and so we have gotten very involved in hosting blood drives and supporting people who want to give blood. So, for every blood donor out
there there is not enough gratitude in the world for you guys. You’re giving a
life to someone who needs a life so thank you.
