My life was literally hanging in the balance as doctors struggled to figure out how to give me the transfusions I desperately needed. As I remember, a doctor stepped in at the last moment to give me an injection that immediately gave my veins a boost, enough for them to accept blood transfusions.
To this day, I remember that doctor, who was literally an angel as far as I am concerned, saved my life. I also now realize that blood donors saved my life as well, because the blood was there when I needed it. I am now a regular blood donor who believes in miracles and realizes that those miracles happen every day because someone gives blood. I take every chance I can to convince others to give the gift of life.
