Mike Hernandez’s family would be smaller without blood donors. Donors saved the lives of his wife, daughter, brother and mother-in-law.
“Stephanie nearly died giving birth to our first daughter Molly. She needed seven units of blood to survive, or our second daughter Zoe would have never been born four years later.” The impact of blood donation on Mike’s family continued when his brother David survived chemotherapy with the help of the units of blood he received. David now serves as a nurse, helping others. Blood donors added 15 months to the life of Stephanie’s Mom when she was battling Leukemia.
