Tuesday, July 25, 2017 was just a normal day for Amanda Jaczkowski. She was riding her bike to work when she was struck by a gravel truck. She was rushed to the hospital in serious condition with a laundry list of injuries. She is requiring a multitude of surgeries. Amanda is still in the hospital to date. It will be a long and painful road to recovery. Amanda’s attitude and determination is so very inspiring!
Anyone who knows Mandi can attest to her love of life and passion for helping others. She gives back to the community constantly by helping to revitalize Detroit, assisting the homeless, and helping refugees get acclimated to the new country. You can never keep Mandi off of her feet–between swing dancing, polkaing, and playing soccer, she is always moving and full of the kind of energy that inspires others to join in.
Mandi has spent so much time giving back to the community and spreading love to those around her, it is the least we can do to rally behind her in her recovery. Amanda has had 15 surgeries to date and has been given 35 units of blood. She has expressed her wishes to somehow replace all the blood that helped save her life! Above all, Amanda appreciates all of your prayers and good wishes.
Help us reach our goal and ensure that patients receive the life saving blood they need. Make and keep an appointment to give blood to the American Red Cross. Just click on “Pledge to Give Blood” and you will be provided with locations near you to donate.
One blood donation can help save up to three lives. That means a lot to patients in need.
How about taking a selfie while giving blood and post it?
