Thank you so much for your blood donation. It helps give me more energy for my fight against AML. I am a fourteen year old that loves all star cheerleading. I have a week at home in between aggressive chemotherapy and came in to the clinic today to receive blood. This will help me enjoy the couple of days that I have at home prior to starting inpatient chemotherapy again. Your donation assisted with my fight, thank you!

Thank you so much of your gift of blood. My father was in a motorcycle accident and needed lots of blood in his surgery. Without you, he would not have lived. We truly appreciate what you did and hope you continue to do it.
