I turn 19 on March 29th, and for my birthday I am asking her friends and peers to donate blood to the Red Cross on Saturday, March 31st or Sunday, April 1st. As a "Sick Chick" birthdays bring a lot of mixed feelings, while it is exciting that I made it another year, it is hard to process the survivor’s guilt that comes along with it. So instead of typical celebrations, I’m asking that you donate to a great cause! I’m reliant on transfusions and by extent donors, this is the best possible gift you can give!
If you’d like to donate, you will need to make an appointment! Here is the link to find the closest Red Cross donation center near you:
