My Daddy was a blood donor, and he donated every chance he got. I just started donating this year, but I wish I had started sooner. It feels good to follow in his footsteps, while also helping someone in need. I hope he’d be proud to know that I am doing something that was so important to him.
If the doctors had caught that my Daddy losing blood, in time, blood could have made all the difference for him, and could have saved his life. I will do whatever I can to help others, and if my donation could even help one family not have to suffer a loss like we did, it will be worth it! For my birthday this year, I’m not asking for anything, BUT if you feel compelled to donate blood to help someone in need, I would be so happy!
