5 years ago, after an uncomplicated pregnancy and delivery of our 2nd daughter, I developed a postpartum hemorrhage that was further complicated by disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). Over the course of about 6 hours, I lost 4 liters of blood and would need 15 units of blood products to survive.
Donated blood literally saved my life.
To honor the gift given to me by 15 strangers, I’m hoping and praying to invite 75 people to give blood with me during the month of June, the 5th anniversary of my life saving blood transfusion.
5 years * 15 units of blood that saved me = 75 people
Help me reach my 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.
