Briggs Beats Cancer

36 /100

On May 23, 2018, my sweet, active, joyful,fun-loving nephew Briggs was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL).  He’s just 5 years old.

In just a handful of days he has undergone several platelet transfusions and blood transfusions which would not have been possible without people like you and me taking the time to donate blood.

Thursday, June 14, 2018 is World Blood Donor Day and the following day is his birthday.  Please consider rolling up a sleeve on any day that fits your schedule in honor of Briggs and all the others fighting this and similar battles.  Your life-saving gift is important to so many!

And with this virtual blood drive, you can give where you live!

Will you consider joining our virtual blood drive and fighting alongside such a brave and strong kid? #BriggsBeatsCancer

Thank you!

Briggs is responding well to treatment and he will be in the low risk protocol for the remainder of his treatment plan as long as he continues a good response!!!

He has gotten his hair shaved like a bald eagle and his spirits are soaring! Do you want to go #BaldForBriggs, too?!

There’s still a long way to go for this little warrior and we thank you for your continued prayers and support.

If you want to help Briggs and others like him, please consider donating blood or platelets in his name. Your lifesaving gift would go so far!!! Make a pledge here and donate blood or platelets in your own hometown!
