Emily

Taylorsville, North Carolina

My daughter, Emily, has a rare genetic blood disorder, atypical HUS. It ultimately caused her kidneys to fail, and she periodically needs blood transfusions to boost her hemoglobin.

Her latest episode put her in the hospital with double pneumonia and a low blood oxygen level. Her hemoglobin wasn’t able to rebound on its own and she was given two units of blood.

I was extremely thankful to be able to share a heartfelt thank you to the donor. Thanks for offering this service.
