Sleeves Up–Save Lives

Baby Allyson with Mom & Buffy, 1954
0 /

Here I am with my mom and our dog Buffy, sometime in 1954. As many of you know, I was a preemie– two and a half months early. We both almost didn’t make it, and yet, here I am, 70 years later and going strong!

My grandmother was a lifelong blood donor, which has always inspired me to give blood. And I know that at the time of my birth, my mom required blood transfusions.

Please consider looking up the American Red Cross online and making an appointment at the nearest center near you. Thank you!

Allyson aka Ally
