Bella

Tallahassee, Florida

Three years ago Emily and Jessee were excited about the birth of their twin girls.

Then anxiety set in, one of the twins, Bella, was born very pale and shortly after her birth she needed multiple platelet and blood transfusions.

After months of visiting doctors Bella was diagnosed with a rare anemia. As a result, Bella needed transfusions every three to six weeks.

When Bella’s doctor began a new steroid therapy, her need for blood transfusions dropped. Now, Bella has gone nearly a year without needing a transfusion.

Today she is a healthy, spunky and playful toddler. Her mother Emily says, “I want blood donors to know our story, because if it wasn’t for their generosity, I wouldn’t have my little girl. Her father Jessee and I would personally like to thank donors for giving Bella a second chance at life, giving Emma her sister back and keeping our family whole.”
