When my son and her daughter married, Tracie and I became family. We made many plans together. But a few days before my 65th birthday, Tracie lost her battle to leukemia. As I reflected on my birthday of how to honor Tracie, this idea came to me. Cancer patients depend on our blood donations. Please join me in making a donation of plasma or platelets during the next 65 days. Our family and many other families will be grateful for the gift of life….blood.
