Be a Hero – Donate Blood!

The blood donor of today, could be the recipient tomorrow!

The blood donor of today, could be the recipient tomorrow.  I used to be an avid blood donor.  Then, two years ago I was diagnosed with a rare blood disease that left me reliant on other donors!

I have Immune Thrombocytopenia or easier said, ITP 😬 This is a blood disease where your immune system attacks itself and kills your own platelets.  Platelets are important because they are what we need to clot our blood.  If your blood can’t clot, you can bleed out and die.  Scary, right?! 🙈

In the last two years I’ve needed a number of transfusions (platelets)  and IVIG treatments (plasma).  None of this would be possible without generous and caring blood donors.

Now, more than ever we need YOU! The nation is facing a severe blood crisis.  Blood donations haven’t been this low in over 10 years.  Donating blood is easy, it takes less than one hour and from that one donation, you can save THREE lives.

If you’re healthy and able PLEASE consider donating blood.  You never know who’s life you could be saving… it could even be mine! 😉

💜 When you give blood, you’ll be doing one of the most amazing things anybody could dream of—saving a life.

💜 The blood you donate gives someone another chance at life
