I donate because it matters.
I started donating platelets with another dad. Around the time both our daughters were going through a bone marrow transplant. 4 years later and after many platelets donations. It still is a blessing to know that you have the ability to provide so much hope to someone.
The backstory and the reason it matters for our family is significant. Our beautiful daughter Hattie was diagnosed with AML leukemia at 9 months old. She went through almost a year of treatment and received hundreds of blood products from people we will never know. Hattie is now 4 years old and it is an amazing blessing.
You might not ever know who you are donating to. But the only thing you need to know is IT Matters. Every single child, person, and parent is so incredibly thankful for that. ❤️🙏
